Film Crew and Pointillism

Tara introduced us to pointillism and here is one of the results of her tutoring.

The film crew were INSPIRING which is pertinent because they are from Inspire Productions Nelson.
Finally we completed the editing stage of another movie trailer started on's Jaws V!

Earlier in the day.......Today the film crew come in and will help us create our own chat show.
Tara will be tutoring the children in Pointillism.....I had to wikipedia this term. This photo from wikipedia is a clue:
Will post later the results from our day. (See above)

Editing * Art * The Beautiful Game * More Shooting!

We're still editing all our video footage but we are near completion.

Today we conquered a lot of editing and discovered new computer tools and fun like voki.
Our video footage will soon be uploaded to our Youtube Channnel.

Our thanks to Uma's dad for taking the crew out for a game of soccer.

Tara our art/design tutor came in today and the children created masterpieces on canvas.

Video Shooting Techniques

Today Luz will be coming in to pass on her wealth of experience in the video shooting field.
Luz is a broadcast journalist from Chile.......
We have had a very successful video day. Before we launched off into the realm of filmmaking etc Luz took us through some fundamentals like the camera can only capture a part of what we see, the human desire to capture what we do see and how to plan well to capture the story we are trying to tell or moment we want to convey.
If you came into the programme today you would have been captured by the buzz and energy of all the creativity at is a truly energising experience. Some were off planning shots, some were videoing with Luz, some were doing action shots, with Spencer, using a special camera attached to a bike helmet.
I really wish I could show you the results right here and now, but the thing about videoing is the editing stage is labour intensive. So I'll leave you with another movie trailer by the young girls yest…

Movie Trailer Monday

Today we created our own movie trailers.
Before we started we watched a few movie trailers and noted that they were often fast-paced, they only showed short clips of the actual movie, they made you want to go and see the movie and most of all they NEVER told the end of the story!

Here is the result of a group of 5-7year olds trailer for "Robin Hood".
