  • Video Creation Viewing Party!

    Posted by Elizabeth Shelley at 9/13/2017

    Fifth through eighth grade students participating in video creation class completed their first project this week. Students worked in groups to complete short movie trailers using iMovie. We used storyboards and worked cooperatively to plan locations to film, props to use and various different types of shots including wide, close up and action. Groups edited and reworked their trailers and even included some bloopers in their final products which were shown today. It was so great to see everyone's final products displayed and get ideas for moving forward with our next projects. After our viewing party, complete with popcorn, students self assessed their work on a learning scale. 

    Our first round of video creations was a great success and was fully student driven. Be on the lookout for many more great projects to come!
