#ScribereUnpad 2015 Creative Project

Update (27 July 2015).

Thank you for those who have shown interest in supporting this Creative Project. So far we have submission for most positions, but we are still waiting for you! We’re still in search for more stories about Jatinangor (in any kind of genre), more music/lyrics/poems about Jatinangor, more people to collaborate, and of course, more fun.

The form will stay open till next week.

However, we also need to get started. Here’s our schedule:

Can we meet most of you on 30th of July? Or if you’re still not in Jatinangor, be sure to keep an eye on this blog/our tweet timeline/LINE pimp post.

Creative Development Team will need to start first, preferably on the first week of August. We are hoping to arrange meetings (in campus or virtual through social media platforms) that enable the team to compose, arrange, and write stories. Those who have sign up for creative team will be contacted by us.

– Meanwhile, a week after Creative Development Team begins, we are going to have plot and create shooting plan. The Technical Production Team is expected to be ready by then. In the mean time, the team is going to plan the production and make sure everything will run smooth during shooting days.

You can also tag another anak Inggris to come to the meeting(s); we welcome any active students of Prodi Inggris. Stay in touch, we’ll keep you updated. Thank you, and let’s do this!

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION!

You. Yes, you. You are all invited to participate in #ScribereUnpad 2015 Creative Project.

This project is  a collaborative work involving active students of Prodi Sastra Inggris Universitas Padjadjaran who have taken Creative Writing class at least once in their life (or those who will be). Our theme this year is Everything Jatinangor.

The outcome of this project will be in form of a short collaborative film, to be screened at Gates 2015, as a warm welcome (and warning, haha) for the new members of our Prodi.

.

For practival purposes, we decided to divide the work flow into two teams. Interested individual should pick his/her part in either team–and since this is a collaborative project, we want to make sure everyone has his/her own designated role.

Creative Development Team: This team will be responsible for writing, compiling, and sorting stories about Jatinangor submitted by fellow team members during their Creative Writing classes. This team will also involved in drafting elaborate plans for dramatization of the stories. Any interested individual is encouraged to use his/her old Creative Writing assignments, or his/her new ideas/dramatization. (For example: content and story writer, story compiler, proof-reader, story editor, content editor, grammar nazi, and many other possibilities).

or

Technical Production Team: This team will be responsible for producing stories and performance support. Due to the complexities of this team’s work, we encourage interested individual to specify their interest. (For example: filming crew, communicator, film camera work, photographer, location shoot logistic, audio recording person, device(s)/instrument(s) supplier, film talent and musicians for dramatization, performing artist, studio mixing engineer, film editor, photo editor, graphic designer, graphic animator, and many other possibilities).

.

Please fill in the form below before 27 July 2015, or you can fill it online. You can comment on this page if there’s any lingering question or contact us (Rima and/or Erika). Even a small part of your contribution is appreciated bangets. Happy Holiday! We’ll see you soon. Thank you.

Midterm submission is here

As for schedule, we have talked about it in class and here’s your early general reminder. Deadline for blog-posting your complete final assignment (both your story and dramatization) is 24 April 2015, 23.59. Final writing guideline and assignment submission are available on the Guidelines page. Also, you may also want to consult the Grade Rubric page on how your work will be graded. Comments on your classmates’ works should be submitted on 25 April-1 May 2015.

If you have question about  grading, you can comment on this post. We’ll get to it as soon as possible.

Assignment 3: Plot

We have read “Ave Maria” by Idrus in the previous meeting and found rooms for exploration. For this week’s assignment, create a scene based on your interpretation of the short story. You may change the character(s), setting(s), point of view, or even the genre (film, song, poem, etc.) as long as you keep your track on the story. Pick one specific scene in “Ave Maria”, and tell your own version of the story in the comment box in no more than 200 words.

Deadline for the assignment is on Tuesday, March 24.

May the fun be with you.

Assignment 2: Point of View

We have distinguished the difference between character and narrator in the last meeting. To explain this, we are going to have an exercise to show how you perform as a narrator for your writing.

1. Capture a scene/view/person or anything with your camera.
2. Tell a story according to the picture.
3. Use the third-person narrator to tell the story.
4. Post your story to Instagram, Facebook, or Google + as a news feed.
5. Attach hashtags #ScribereUnpad and #CreativeWriting2015 at the end of your story.
6. Your story must be in 100-150 words, hashtags not included.
7. Copy the URL link to the comment box and put your NPM and class before the link.
