Create a 30-60 second campaign ad extolling the virtues of your emperor. Try to convince your viewing audience that he is a good man who (if they could vote) should be chosen as the leader of Rome again. You can narrate your movie or simply write the information down as a visual image and then use theme music. Your movie should include the following:

  • At least 4 different images
  • Emperor's name
  • Campaign slogan for the emperor
  • Year of campaign (one of the years he ruled)
  • At least 4 significant accomplishments or traits that should make people vote for him. The more detail you can add here the better!
