Resources you will be using for this project:

Animoto

Using Animoto will be the last part of the project.  Here you will put your project together by uploading pictures you gathered from the Internet, images you created using Presentation, and pictures you may have uploaded from a camera.  With animoto you will be able to select a theme,  music, and add limited text to your images.

Presentation or PowerPoint

Use Presentation or PowerPoint to create slides with text.  You will need to export these slides as jpg. images.  For this project you should have 8-12 slides or images.  The first slide should be a title slide.

Storyboard or Outline

Most productions start out as an idea on paper.  Use the paper storyboard or create an outline in Docs to organize your thoughts.  Think about what you want to say about Of Mice and Men.
