Making Our Movie

“Hooray!”I said. Today we were going to start filming. Finally, Tyla and Calvin had sorted out what they were going to wear and we had finished most of our script. We still had to look for more.

For scene 1 we had to record Jonita ( the mum ) telling us it’s time to go to the museum. It took us a while because me and Jonita kept looking at the camera. Whoops. Unfortunately all the shots we did were like that. Too bad, I thought.

On day 2 tried to film as much as we could. “Wow, where are we?” we yelled ( but not too loud). It was a bit from 1 of our scenes. We had just arrived where we call the olden days, when Maori's were around. Soon Tyla and Calvin walk up to an old lady that I had been talking to. Soon the other group did their’s but they were doing a shooting scene so we did the noises.” shoo, pshoo” we laughed.

Day three. We filmed the rest of scene 2 and then moved on to scene 3. This time we filmed us going to Rangimarea’s( old lady ) whare/(house). We are still getting the rest done. I think we have done a good job. I can’t wait to finish it.
