1. Peer Critique
It has been a long week, so sit back and relax! We will be watching films for the the first part of class and will come up with some general guidelines for ourselves afterwards on how we can improve as a class.
2. Feedback Sandwich
Just like a real sandwich, this can be done well or incredibly poorly.
A bad sandwich has…
- insignificant top bread that is discounted by a ‘but’
- meat that is negatively phrased, personal, and not constructive
- bottom bread that struggles to compensate
Example: Dinner was great, but you made it too salty. Thanks though.
A good sandwich has…
- meaningful top bread that highlights successes
- criticism that is positive and constructive
- bottom bread that is encouraging and acknowledging the effort
Suggested Successful Comment Format:
I like the use of __________, it makes the ____________.
Suggested Improvement Comment Format:
I found that _____________, it could be _________ if it __________.
Suggested Acknowledgement Comment Format:
[Say anything positive that affirms their effort!]
Example: Dinner was great, I really liked what you did with the rosemary and lemon on the roast. I think it could have been even better if there was salt on the side as it was a bit salty for my taste. Let me know when you cook it next, I’d love to see how you did it!
3. Open Studio
We will have open studio over the next four days to complete the Conflict through Dialogue project, so plan for a total of four to five hours of editing. If you need to finish or reshoot scenes, please do so as soon as possible and with the knowledge that it will take away from your post-production time.
