This assignment is essentially to create your own music video for a song. There are many different ways to go about this. If you're using a Mac it is very simple to record videos and upload and edit them into iMovie. If you're using a PC, Windows Movie Maker is probably the way to go, unless you have a software like Final Cut which is is the top of the line. It doesn't have to be the entire song, but at least try and get a minute and a half to two minute length. Trust me, this assignment can be tough, but it's definitely a lot of fun.
