Another inspiring problem solver and innovator - Jim Sill. If you need any tips about movie making and Film this is the site for you. It could not have come at a better time as I am preparing for the Manaiakalani Film Festival and looking into ways I can support teachers with the development of their movies.
This session had so many top tip takeaways as I was able to see what a great intro to a movie needs. Take a look at the many resources on his website to find out more!!
Introduction to a movie (robber trying to steal gems and jewels from the school):
1. Wide shot - set the scene eg have stand outside of the school and record the entrance to make it clear it is a school by including the name
2. Close up shot - show the main character eg show robber creeping around the school possibly climbing up the wall
3. Close up shot - show their face/ main characteristic of them eg show they are wearing a mask
4. Extreme Close up - show the prize/main event/problem/finish line - show what the character is trying to overcome/achieve/struggle with eg show the jewellery/ gems
Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
