We have worked together by making a story by using words from a sheet of paper and by that story we induvidually made our own version of the story from Thea the tea cup and Freezo her friend against the vegetables. Aria
Great comment Aria I think you got a lot out of today's session and made some great contributions to the discussions! You might want to think about how you are going to create your movie you have loads of options -stop motion, live action, backgrounds costumes and props! JG
We have really worked together today for a example when we had to write a story first we made the first part all together and then we had to write a story independently.I created a mask .yakeen
I really liked your film trailer idea Yakeen it was clear and would make an exciting trailer! It sounds like you wan to make a live action movie, you could think about how you will use your props and costumes and backgrounds to create your movie. Also remember that you can use other filmmaking styles like stop motion.
We have written a story about vegatables taking over fruits but thea and freezo killes them, also we had to make a story board. Me and my brother are going to be making the film trailer. Made by parsa
Hi Parsa, you made some good contributions to the discussion and had some clear ideas about what makes a good trailer! you've already worked out that you can use a mixture of styles in your film which is great but remember to clearly plan your story and make sure your storyboard script has clear scene descriptions and dialogue (what a character says)
we have qworked together by drafting a story plan together giving positive feedback telling each other what we could do better and giving each other ideas.Zaynab
You presented your pitch well and you had a clear idea of how to create a trailer well done! You made some good contributions to the discussion and you are working will in a team. You might want to think about how you are going to use stop motion animation and clay to create your film and use your storyboard to piece the most exciting bits of your story together.
we have worked really hard as a team to draft a story board and give ideas to help everyone inprove them. we are making a trailer for a film and we have to show it off. made by Thea-Trinity
Hi Thea you worked well and made some good contributions to the discussion. I can see that you are really getting into the prop making - well done! You might want to think about getting some help during the live action bits when you make your film. You might want to also consider using stop motion and clay for some scenes in your film trailer.
we've made stories,had fun,made stuff,we been learning about the environment, this time the summer challenge has been EPIC!I hope the next one will be even better! by Thandie
I'm glad you think that the summer challenge was epic! I think that you have learned a lot from this years sessions and you've been a keen artist and writer! You might want to think about how you are going to turn your film trailer ideas into a film and what techniques you are going to use. You might want to make sure that your storyboard shows the most exciting bits of your story.
we were worked on the saem theme. We came up with our idea as a group and then we started writing. And then we started creating our trailer. My film is called Veggies Vs Ice. I created a story board and I need to start making my film which will be a stop motion animation.
I can see from your written work and your storyboard that you are excited about producing your film trailer! You might want to check your storyboard to see if its showing the most exciting bits of your story. This will really help when you start creating your characters and backgrounds.
I think that you have all worked hard.I hope that you can see the benefits of working together to solve a problem and how teamwork has made all your stories easier to write and turn into storyboards. Just make sure that;your storyboard shows the the most exciting bits of your story; a description is under each picture;any dialogue(words spoken by characters)is written down;and really think about how your voice over will describe your film!REMEMBER: A Good Film Trailer:- Is like a short advert for your film- Is short clips of the film combined- Contains funny, entertaining or action clips to encourage you to see the film- has a voice over and titles telling you what's exciting in the film- has exciting or emotive music- Is persuasive!Key words: emotive, persuasive
