10:45 Agile Project Management with Scrum & Kanban
Today’s modern office setting, especially in the technology production and design fields is based on solid project management practices. Companies like Dealer, EASports, Zynaga, Google, General Motors all work in teams formed for specific purposes.

Activity #2 Trello
Create an account with Trello (https://trello.com/en-US) using your school gmail account. The style of board you will be making is called a KanBan board. We made one the other day so all you probably need to do is just use the login with Google Option

The point of this activity is to get familiar with the tools available for breaking down a large project into small deliverables. Break your KanBan board into 3 columns: To Do, In Progress, Complete.
Begin to create your To Do’s (also called a Project Backlog) on your board.

11:30 Horror Movie Intro / Title Sequence – Group Project
Why Horror Movie title? Creepy is the season – October is nearly upon us. Plus you get to add all the cool effects like adjusting curves, tint, noise, color correction, re, smoke, crystals, stretch, distortion, smear, (need I go on) and a pile of other effects found in After Effects.
Why Group Project – we live and work with others. This is an easy project to coordinate responsibilities and roles. Don’t let your personal limits on working with groups define you. Practice, practice, practice. Hey we all can learn to dance and it gets easier (and less embarrassing) and more fun!

- Title (your movie title is: Creeps from the Deep)
- Duration: 10 – 25 seconds
