PRE-PRODUCTION FOLIO

Due: Friday 4th May

The first phase will include brainstorming and developing ideas for your major production. Students will demonstrate a range of media skills and will be encouraged to apply these ideas in a folio/design plan to be presented at the conclusion of this task.

This assessment task requires each group to submit an appropriately presented PRE-PRODUCTION FOLIO.

To fulfill the criteria, the following sections need to be included:

1. FRONT PAGE
  At the beginning of your groups pre-production folio, you should include a front page which clearly outlines the groups members, the name of the film and the signature item
