How to Turn In Final Projects

NOTE: All final projects MUST be submitted in the following format if you are interested in having them published on the website.

When turning in your final project, create a folder and put all of your media elements in it. Name your folder with your Last Name and one word that describes subject and one word that describes the primary format. For example: BerkeySquareDanceVideo
