Video Projects:

If you are assigned a video project, you will need to follow the instructions given to you by your instructor and upload a video to submit to you instructor for review/grading. 

Export your videos as H.264, .mov, or MP4 formats before uploading. 

Screenwriting / Text-Based Projects:

These projects require you to write and then export a document in .fountain or PDF format before uploading.

Crew Projects:

If you are assigned a crew project to work on, you will see the Crew Hub button appear in the top navigation bar of your dashboard.

Crew projects are assignments you work on as a group. The instructor will assign roles or allow the crew to decide amongst themselves. The crew collaborates to create a project and submit it for review or grading.

Crew pages have a list of members, a discussion board, and a list of projects. Click into your project to see the instructions and important details like when it's due. 

Upload and share assets with your crew like screenplays, shot lists, b-roll, and video edits within each project.
