For the past few weeks the Year 8’s have been filming a movie for to enter in a local competition. We started with a whole afternoon brainstorming ideas and decided on the theme of happiness. In the last two sessions with our Directors, Maddie Maxwell and Bridget Ellis, we have been filming with the camera. We have used the green screen technique, movie make-up, creating a set, and costumes to wrap this film all together. The film must be five minutes long. All the year 8’s have different character parts to play.
We have all developed a range of acting skills along the way to take with us through high school and beyond. Everyone is looking forward to seeing the final product at the North Otago Film Awards in September.
