Please purchase, or borrow, a 8GB USB stick as we will need to back up our webpage and premiere files. I will be deleting the photoshop files from my hand in file shortly. If you want copies please bring your stick. Also bring in headphones for this weeks class so I do not hear 26 car horns beeping.

Adobe Youth Voices: The first form is to be filled out and signed by parents. The AYV model release form is to be used for people that appear in your productions.
Course Profile: Com Tech TGJ2O.docEquipement requirements: Due to the limited computer storage space allotted to each student, Com. Tech. students should purchase a 8GB USB stick to back up their work.Earphones should be brought in when working on audio or video files.
