Graffiti Wedding: Photo Project Using Agile, Scrum and Kanban

This project implemented Agile and Scrum techniques into the classroom.  Students were asked to self-organize into roles, Creative Director, Photographer, Logistics, Gear, and Post-Production, to conceive of, plan and execute an 11-week photographic project. 

The project was broken into 4 sprints, between 2 and 4 weeks long. Card sorting, via Trello and Kanban style boards, were used to share ideas, track progress and prioritize needed assets.

Each weekly class would start with a stand up meeting to check progress and ensure goals were being met and troubleshoot known and foreseen issues. 

Sarah E. Gibbons roll in this project was that of Project Mangers and Scrum Master. 

William Mitchell's role was that of Photographer.  He was responsible for making the photographs, all lighting and production, and shots set up at the shoot. He worked with team to find needed talent / props.

Janet Mahone's role was that of Creative Director.  She was to conceive the idea/ concept (with input form the team) for the shoot and was responsible for pre-production lighting diagrams, style/mood boards, tear sheets and prop ideas. She needed to convey visually her ideas to rest of group.
