Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will learn how to choreograph and direct for this medium. I will hold a public screening of my final film in which I will request feedback from the audience. The screening will include a Q and A session with the performers. 2: I will learn how to engage the wider community in my work. I will have a volunteer check attendance numbers at the community time-lapse shoot as well as the screening.
