SHARE YOUR FINAL PROJECT PROPOSALS (
two minutes each! — Nah. Since we’re a small group, each presenter can take up to five minutes. This is an informal presentation; you needn’t prepare anything — unless your project is better shown rather than told… In which case, please bring a few images, clips, objects, etc., so we all can better understand what you’ve got planned, and we’re thus better equipped to provide helpful feedback.)
