Prepare for SVO Assembly Line

To do lists are prioritized with the first item being the most important (do not spend more than the allotted hours; just ignore lower priority items once hours are exceeded)

Jeannie
  • Document Image Bank through an Excel spreadsheet
    • PLATINUM > Special Projects > Griffith Project > IMAGES > HierImageBank
    • Ignore FilmStills, Guide to UBP images, QuoteCards, QUOTES, ScholarPhotos
    • keep the spreadsheet on the partition in the IMAGES folder
    • include the following entries:
      • Name of file
      • Folder 1 (its location on the partition)
      • Folder 2 (the more local or more nested folder)
      • Brief Description
      • Citation (if available)
      • Assigned (Y/N) – already assigned to an SVO? (so we can sort according to images that are not yet assigned)
      • Clip1 | ScholarName1 | SVOtitle1 (use the same abbreviation that is used for file name of Scholar ID tag)
      • Clip2 | ScholarName2 | SVOtitle2 (hopefully images are assigned to no more than two places)

    • Use Special Projects > Griffith Project > IMAGES > Assigned Images to determine which ones are already assigned

  • view Birth of a Nation
  • familiarize yourself with SVO audio on the SVO coweb
  • familiarize yourself with other web site materials


Sue
  • Make PSDs for quote cards and info cards using a template
    • put any with incomplete citations or ones that prompt other types of questions in a separate folder on partition
    • locate text for quotes/info cards on the SVO coweb in the graphic content brainstorming section
    • document incomplete quotes/info cards (i.e., the ones listed on the coweb but in such partial form that you can't construct a photoshop document) in list form, including scholar name and SVO title
    • use template found in PLATINUM > Special Projects > Griffith Project > IMAGES > HierImageBank > Quote Cards

  • view Birth of a Nation
  • familiarize yourself with SVO audio on the SVO coweb and images in the Image folder on the partition
  • familiarize yourself with other web site materials


Patrick
  • Finalize quotes on the coweb before Sue starts her work
    • any more to pull or insert?
    • text file of quotes found in PLATINUM > Special Projects > Griffith Project > IMAGES > HierImageBank > Quotes

  • Add any new images to the Image Bank before Jeannie begins her work on the image spreadsheet
  • convert greg's sound files to real audio and post on the web
  • once the spreadsheet is done, add in a space for citation and copyright comment, and for caption/trigger and caption/trigger already created (Y/N)
  • adapt Greg's SVO to the new template


Michael
  • testing on PC with Director 8 projector
  • tweak images in Image Bank – aged, black background, or white background for use with matte ink
