You should not be getting hung up on technical guidelines, the concentration now should be on planning on telling a good story.

Here are the technicals. Three segments of either audio or video with audio. Each segment must be a stand alone program that tells a story that has a beginning, a middle and an end. The whole point of the class is telling a story using new media, so if your show fails to do that you will lose credit. Each episode must fit into the overall theme of your program. Episodes that do not fit into the theme of the program will result in a lowered grade. Acceptable file formats are listed below. Length of each segment cannot be less than one or more than ten minutes long.

All work must be original. If work by others is included author must be able to prove legal rights to use material. Violations of copyright and/or plagiarism will result in disqualification of segments containing disputed material. Serious violations will result in getting an F grade on the final.

Video: H.264 video, up to 768 kbps, 320 x 240, 30 frames per sec., Baseline Profile up to Level 1.3 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 kbps, 48 Khz, stereo audio in .mov file format.
