Assignment: Art Report
Create a video report on a particular artistic style, movement, or period, and explain why they are historically significant.
Intersperse the presentation with still images and video if appropriate. You could do this as a studio presentation or lecture, and display the images on a screen behind the presenter, or else you can make the images go full-screen.
Create a virtual art gallery to display a selection of works.
If appropriate, create reconstructed or dramatised scenes from the era.
Add extra content on-screen by using text to complement what you're saying.
Add appropriate background music to create atmosphere, and ensure you have a striking title sequence.
