HOOPTY ASSIGNMENT
Create a multimedia slideshow presentation, using images and audio on a “Hoopty.”


What is a Hoopty?
Noun: Basically, a piece of junk car. Usually cheap and/or broken down. Can be any size, make or model, but must (or should) be embarrassing to drive for some reason.

What to Shoot:
•Find a senior who drives a vehicle that is best described as a “hoopty.”
•Pose them in various ways, both inside and outside of the car. Look for a clean non-distracting background. Maybe photograph the Hoopty at cool location that fits with the theme or style of car.
•Fill the frame with the whole car. Take a vriety of shots, including some medium shots, inside shots and also get some interesting details (close ups) of unique “features” of the vehicle. Also look for a messy truck or back seat full of stuff.
Look for rust, trash, broken door handles, missing knobs, frayed seats, wire holding items together… anything that visually communicates "junker."


Record audio to go with your images:
Bring these questions to ask your “Hoopty” owner during the interview:

What year is your car?
What make?

Model?
Students / person's Name?
Car’s Name?
Price they paid for it (or how they got it)?
How long have they had it, or has it been in their family?
Current problems/needs?
Special features or “upgrades”?
Best part about having this car?
Worst part about having this car?
What do they keep inside their car?
Funny or interesting story or ride with this car?


If the car is big and powerful, or old and funky and hard to start, record it starting up, or the sound of it revving up…

Put the images and audio together in iMovie.  You could even add a music soundtrack if you can find a song that fits the “mood” of your Hoopty.
