For Task 4:
Collaborative project, students are required to select footage from the video recording to demonstrate their artistic choices. This process will require basic video-editing software to select the footage chosen for submission by each student from the full recording of the theatre piece.
The footage from the video recording that the student selects for the examiner needs to show his or her contribution, artistic choices and how these were realized.
Students might choose, for example, to select a moment that they had a hand in creating, a section they performed in, a moment they have directed or a moment that shows their lighting design.
This choice will be dependent on what their focus was in the creation and presentation of the piece.
In order to choose the best footage for the assessment task, students need to be aware of what their contributions to the creation of the piece of theatre were.
Use the IB handout below to identify your specific contributions.
