Movie Making

Room 8's Movie Making

In Room 8 we have started creating our movies for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Over the next few weeks we will be learning how to use green screen in different ways to add our special effects to our movie. I (Mr Shanks) have been taking my editing skills from high school and new skills learnt to bring the students ideas to life. The different ways will be using green screen will to change our background, make students appear and disappear, to change the roof into a thunder storm, and changing the ground to lava. We are looking forward to sharing our videos at Glen Taylor's Film Festival and are hoping that our videos will be selected for the Manaiakalani Film Festival at Sylvia Park
