That Blue Square Thing

Rave & Rant

The CIDA and DIDA courses are now finished and will not run anymore.
I’ll keep these pages up for a while as there are some useful resources for me on them. Any future resources will be on the Creative iMedia pages.

The target audience is "14-16 year olds". You need to try to keep this in mind. It's you - what appeals to your age group and why?


You need to produce 4 sets of designs. These need to go on the Designs page of your e-portfolio.

You will find templates on the storyboard page if you need to print them to work on.

1. Image Gallery: - you need a sketch of a possible lay out for your image gallery. Make sure this is labelled in some detail. Use the labels to explain the decisions you have made.

2. Rave: You need a visual timeline to show the way your rave will look. This needs to be visual (have images on it) and be an obvious timeline. This means you need to include approximate timings, starting from 0 and ending somewhere between 30 and 45 seconds.

Label your timeline in detail and, in particular, make sure you cover how the music/sound will work with the animation. How it will synchronise.

3. Rant: You need two things for this - a script and a storyboard. The storyboard needs to give some idea of how the slideshow will work, including the animations you will include.

Again, make sure you label the storyboard in detail to explain the design decisions you have made.

4. Vox Pop Video: You need some design sketches to show how your Vox Pop screens might look. I would focus on giving some ideas about elements such as captions and images etc... to use.
