  • Website and app portion of the group project. Try to meet today's deadline, but if there are problems, Creative Directors should confer with me.
  • The fifth phase is development of script and presentation.  This phase must be COMPLETE by Wednesday, Feb. 22
    The final phase is rehearsal and polishing your presentationThis phase must be COMPLETE by Monday, February 27
    The presentation date will be determined by how well things are going on Monday. We will have a run-through for practice, and then we will present. HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE TUESDAY, FEB. 28th!
Practicum: Continue with portfolio prep - the next review will begin right after Spring Break. I should expect to see new work being displayed and some old work displaced...
