Adobe Premiere Elements

Project 1


Now that you have been given an overview of  Adobe Premiere Elements 2. We need to practice our skills.  This First project will help us gain: 

We will have three project to work on using Premiere Elements 2.  Now that you have provided the teacher with the topic of your first project, I think that you will have more fun than you know what to do with.  I do hope that you enjoy this series.  Please go on toTask!


You have  to decide on your project.  Now you will need to:

  1. Start gathering your information
  2. Refer to the series Mr. Matarazzo gave you - see below.

I think that it is important that you keep a journal as you become better and better with Adobe Elements, therefore, as an added initiative, your journal will be looked at and given a grade as well as your project.  More about that later.

First Things First: Getting Started

Review the information on the previous exercise.  Basically, the same format - different constellation.   As I said in the task section this is a real world exercise, students and teachers will be using your broadcast to develop classes as well as provide initial information to students.

The listing of constellations will be found at the sites listed below.  Once assigned you will be the only one working on that constellation.

Favorate Class

Interview your teacher of your favorate class.  Talk with them about:
curriculum you have currently working on as well as the material you will be doing before the end of the semester.

Pick topic - in this case check w/ teacher
Find out information on topic - use resource section
Gather information on topic
Gather pictures on topic - the more the better

Write Narrative from notes taken while gathering info
Find more pictures if necessary
Pictures should follow narrative * Create a Storyboard

The Adobe Premiere Elements 2

Lay Audio track into application/ Include your title and ending pages.
Lay Video track to go along with audio track
Make sure you have information about your instructor.  This includes proffessional as well as some personal information.  Remember practice your narrative carefully and completely.  We want you to sound as if this is just a conversation!


ConstellationsFavorate Class

Several search engines have information that you will need for this project. Remember, do not just accept the first bit of information as 'gospel', check the facts from more than one source.  

As you prepare your information for your favorate class, try and remember what it was that you enjoyed about the class,  teacher?, material?, type of  experments?  Things that you enjoyed about it.

Then put together your narrative in your own words.  Plagiarism is frowned upon and can get you into a lot of trouble. Some popular sites to check out include:


This is what you will be graded on.

It has been said that  "television tells most of the stories, to most of the people, most of the time." But just as the Internet has made the world of text publishing assessible to everyone, personal video production has put the medium of television into all of our hands, including you - the grade school student.
