The first step in creating your public service announcement is narrowing down the 10-15 most powerful facts that you want to include in your video. These can be facts you found, or facts your group members found. Write the 10-15 facts you've chosen to include in your video on the attached sheet found below.
The second step is to locate and save images to be used in your video. Because public service announcements share a ton of information in a short period of time (2 minutes), you should include images that communicate powerful emotions and ideas. Quality images can catch a viewer's attention and tell a story all at once. Create a file in your pictures file called PSA. This is where you should save all images you find.
Your second step in this process is to create a storyboard of your public service announcement that will serve as your rough draft. You need to map out the phrases, statistics and images you want to use in your video. Use the storyboard provided below to create your rough draft. When it is complete, have it approved by Mrs. Harvey or Mrs. Trimble and then proceed to step 3.
Once your storyboard has been approved by either Mrs. Trimble or Mrs. Harvey you are ready to create your Animoto. Follow the steps below:
1. Watch the Animoto instructional video by clicking on the link below. It is easier to use Animoto in Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer if you computer has Chrome installed on it.
