What happens when you combine two existing movie titles to create your own movie? Movie Mate Parodies, of course. This project allows students to show off their creative side while demonstrating mastery using masking, non-destructive editing, adjustment layers, blending modes, filters, and the type tools. 


Use your creative mind to meld two titles together. If you are stumped or have hit a wall - look at this version of a lesson plan for high school students in which several titles have been put together already for you to search and complete - reduce by one star if you use from the list. You will need to become an Adobe member to view resource files (free).


Increase by a star if you also turn it into an animatec GIF!
