Outlook For Someday Workshop. Amamauls Studios

What a great opportunity it was to have two of the OUTLOOK FOR SOMEDAY representatives do a workshop with a class of students from Pt England School. It is definitely something worth remembering.

During the lesson, Elie and Chris taught us about the OUTLOOK FOR SOMEDAY as well as much much more including the variety of genre’s, the different shots and also the different angles.

Before we started we got into groups. In my group was Tyla, Lisia, Jorja and I. To start off, Elie and Chris introduced the competition itself. They explained how it works, how you can enter and what you can enter. They also showed us a few of the winning movie from the year before.

After this we were given some quotes, puzzle pieces and pictures. Then we chose one favourite and stood up to explain why we liked it. As soon as we finished that, we started to talk about some idea’s for a movie.

Once our planning was finished we got to create a movie ourselves. My group and I chose to make a quick movie about sustaining the environment.

So on behalf of the year 7 and 8 students from Pt England school, we thank you for teaching us skills and techniques that will definitely be worth remembering. Also thanks for the DVD!

Hexagonal Learning

Yesterday afternoon, our class did some hexagonal learning with Miss King. When doing Hexagonal Learning, you connect the hexagons that may have something to do with each other. For Example: Bread and Knife go together because the knife can cut the Bread. First, we did a very easy one. Then once we had finished that we split up into groups of 3 and started to make our own hexagons. Once we finished making our hexagons, we swapped with another group and tried to connect their's. Here is what we did and why.
