Due July 30th, 2015 - Once in a while, a story becomes so meaningful that it is treasured for generations. Project Ed has selected four of the greatest tales ever told for this short video contest: a high-seas adventure, a dramatic romance, a coming-of-age story, and a tale of morality and manners. Which will you choose?

Choose one of the following four books and create a one-minute video that fits ONE of these categories:
  1. Book Trailer: A video that, like a movie preview, gets potential readers excited enough to run out and pick up this book right away
  2. 60-Second Scene: A re-enactment of a critical scene from the book
  3. Dramatic Reading: A powerful reading of an excerpt from the book that brings the text to life.

The Books (available for free at link below)
  * Moby Dick by Herman Melville - Synopsis: An enormous white whale, a determined hunter, and a compelling narrator comprise one of the greatest American novels of all time.
  * Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë - Synopsis: Heathcliff, an orphan, is taken in by the Earnshaw family, and falls in love with Cathy, his foster sister. When Cathy ends their romance, Heathcliff devotes his life to exacting revenge on the Earnshaws.
  * Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery - Synopsis: Anne, an 11-year-old orphan, is sent by mistake to live with a lonely, middle-aged brother and sister on a Prince Edward Island farm and proceeds to make an indelible impression on everyone around her.
  * Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - Synopsis: In early 19th-century England, a spirited young woman copes with the attentions of a snobbish gentleman as well as the romantic interests of her four sisters.
