Outlook for Someday Workshop

Earlier this term, the Extension group had a workshop with Eli and Chris. They taught us so many things that would really came in handy when film-making. They explained to us the different genres of films that you can create and they also told us about the Outlook for Someday film competition that we have already entered.

During the workshop, they showed us some winning films from the competition which really got us all thinking about what we could create. We were split into groups and we had to create a film about sustainability.  Makerita, Mary L, Jay-Lee and I were were one group. With a group, there of course has to be a group name, we called ourselves GJMR Studios.

Eli and Chris gave us some quotes and a puzzle to complete. When we completed the puzzle, it had 4 bold words on it. Those words were: Culture, Economy, Environment and Society. We thought about the quotes, and the four words and decided to create our film around Economy and Society.

Our main question was: How did the world come to evolve around money? We did pretty well with how much time we had to film and edit which was just 1 hour. 

The workshop was really helpful! We learnt so many things like camera shots, different angles and so much more. It will definitely be remembered for future movie making.

Hexagonal Learning

In class, we did Hexagonal Learning and this is practically connecting 2 or more Hexagons together. But we have to have a reason why they are connected. We got into three groups and we had make our own Hexagonal Learning puzzle and swap it with another group. Here are two of the Hexagonal Learning puzzles we did. This activity really got us thinking and was really interesting.
