*Set-up/strike equipment in WC 1150 (Camera, boom microphone, small light kit—2 instruments all stored in the room)

*Tape (audio/visual) each session as needed.

*Have playback ready for in-class use.

*Record three short acting ‘projects’ for each team of two students with minimal editing. Usually three shots per scene with a long shot, and two close-ups. Other ‘shots’ at the discretion of the instructor and the TA. 

*Tape final project ‘on location’ at the instructor’s home in Orem.

*Contribute your experience and expertise during class discussions.

*Create a BOX that students can access with their recorded material as well as class Guests that will sometimes view student work before they visit the class. 

*The goal is to have each student (usually 12) on camera every day of class.  We usually achieve that.  

*We use existing screens in the room as a monitor so students can watch what is being taped both live and on screen.
