Step 1. Find something you care about and gather pictures and videos about it). It could be your parents or panda bears, anything you think about often.

Step 2. Create a short film, using i movie or any program you feel comfortable with. No restrictions no limitations on how to piece together your short film.

Step 3. Place music that encompasses your thoughts on the subject matter.

Step 4. Place credits at the end letting the audience know who or what you paid homage to.

I wanted to keep this open and with as little parameters as possible. I found that overtly restricting instructions on how to do these assignments kill creativity and force most people to reject the challenge.
