Prof. Howard, Students Create “Cell Phone Theatre” in ENGL-235

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For the next month, students in ENGL-235, Film and Literature, are working in groups to create their own video adaptation of a short story.

The assignment, “Cell Phone Theatre,” asks that each group select a short story to adapt, which they will turn into a script, a 10-minute video, a poster and a summary/analysis, all of which will be uploaded on to a wiki page in Blackboard.

And yes, this means that each student takes a turn at acting and directing and working with a budget of nothing to produce 10 minutes of entertainment for an audience of peers.

Have a look as two groups begin planning and plotting and using their cell phones as auteurs. Updates to follow . . .
