April 16 Meeting

We warmed up our brains with some brain teasers before jumping into our films.  The fifth and sixth graders planned and filmed their "movie moments."  We are excited to finish editing and show off our films at our April 30th session!

The seventh and eighth grade students continued working on their transmedia story.  The students did a table-read for an upcoming scene and practiced giving each other feedback on ways to improve line delivery.  Later, they spent some time reading more of I Kill the Mockingbird, and we brainstormed what quotes from the novel would be good to feature on a t-shirt.  The students have done tremendous work this year, and we hope that they'll be able to complete the last scene of their transmedia story during our April 30th meeting.  

See you then!

April 2 Meeting

     We had a busy day with both groups at our April 2 meeting!  Fifth and Sixth graders chose a book of their own and chose a scene that they would like to turn into a "movie moment."  We thought about all we had learned from analyzing other books that had been turned into movies, and began creating story boards for our own films!  We are excited to begin filming at our next session.
     The seventh and eighth graders continued to make progress on their transmedia story.  We filmed the bathroom section of scene 2, and created the tumbler that will post our story.  We also filmed part of scene 3 with the detectives.

See you all at our April 16 session!
