Tuesday, December 5th – research will be finalized, with portions of the project divided up amongst group members Cam, Matt, Henry, Emilio, and Mitch. Each presenting member will be required to know the particular aspect of the project that he is responsible for discussing. Each member will speak for roughly the same amount of time, eventually committing the topics at hand to memory for Sophia to film. Filming will hopefully get started during this class session or shortly thereafter.

If not during the class session, filming and editing will take place on Friday, December 8th, or when the group has time to assemble and present in an ideal location. Editing and revising will occur during this session.

Friday, December 8th – Sunday, December 10th – presentations, filming, editing, and the remaining facets of the project will be completed and finalized, with a final product produced by the end of the day on Sunday, December 10th. Editing and revising will occur during this session.
