When looking at graphs, we’ll be guided by the following questions:
- What do you notice?
- What do you wonder?
- What’s going on in this graph? Write a catchy headline that captures the graph’s main idea.
- What impact does this topic have on you and your community?
Take 5 minutes to write responses to these prompts
9:55 Team Sprints
Using Agile, the goal is to complete high quality deliverables in a short amount of time. Your team worked through the first initial sprint to deliver a short video effects sequence.
It is now time to step up and deliver an improvement on the first iteration. In this sprint, your client simply wants:
- improved visual effects / additional special effects
- color correction
- copyright information for audio
Render the file as TheForceV2.mp4 and place in your Week 5 folders.
If you are in Cohort B, render the file as TheForceV1.mp4 We’ll look at together this afternoon.

11:55 Multi-Point Tracking – After Effects
Yesterday we looked at single point tracking and using Nulls to attach content to. The parent/child relationship is a powerful way of connecting content together.
Let’s use multipoint tracking to add some dimensional titles in case we want to include both rotation and scale. Additionally, we’ll test out perspective tracking to add content to a cell phone or computer screen.
Hey, we can even make a nice callout together and use the pickwhip tool to do some position parenting.

#2. Resume – Final Draft
This is it. Last version! Complete all Edits. Proofread carefully. Save as a PDF. I always find it best practice to label with the date in the name of the resume. Have a parent look it over before submitting. This one will be graded.
#3. About Me – Draft 1
When we move to Web Dev, we’ll be creating our own portfolios. Like most websites, there is an About Me page.
So, What about you? Can you write a short paragraph about yourself? Create a Google Doc, name it About Me. Here are some good examples of about me pages. Many students find it easier to write in third person.
