Some of the year 7&8 students from Pt England School, were fortunate enough to have a workshop with two guys named Iliah and Chris from the competition, ‘The Outlook For Someday’. It was a great chance for us students to learn more about movie making, whether its the different camera angles, how to be a good director, sound quality, lighting or even editing. We learnt a lot of things that hopefully we could put into action in the future. Here is my short reflection about the day.
The highlight of the day for me, was definitely the ending part. Share and view other peoples movies. Our theme was ‘Sustainability’ (which is also the theme for the competition) which means to keep something going or running. For example RECYCLING! Anyway, my group which we decided to call, V.I.P Productions consisted of me, Shoal, Brooklyn, and Jasmine. We thought that the perfect idea for our movie should be based on different ways to save our native endangered species. Our movie ended up looking great and we are definitely proud of it.
I didn't really have a low light. I had fun during the whole work shop. Finding out ways to make our movie look more effective helped us a lot. I know after this workshop, Mrs Telea (Extension Teacher) is going to make us enter into the competition. I really can’t wait to show of our skills to the whole of Pt England school and to the whole of New Zealand.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Iliah and Chris, for taking the time to come to our school and to teach us how to make our movies look more effective. We have learnt a lot and most of all we all had fun. Once again, thank you very much!!!
