At school Audrey, Samantha, Rehma and I have been working very hard on our stop motion project. Today we finally finished!! We finished first in the class. I think we finished first because when one of us got off track everybody else would yell at them until they calmed down. (We were VERY loud) We finished filming unusually quickly too. Overall we worked well together.
In our movie there is a boy and his friends send him a letter. The letter explains everything about the journey over to America. While the letter is being read out loud panel images slide in and show what the letter is saying. Our video is short but educational. I am very proud of it. Here it is:
Today we began to film. It didn’t really go as planned. Audrey, Samantha, Rehma and I thought that we would get a lot of filming done today but we were wrong. We spent a long time setting things up and gluing things back together. By the time we were all set up we only had half an hour left to film. We ended up having to start all over again. We got no filming done today.
In school we started a stop motion project. It is about immigration. Our topic is the Journey Over to America. For the past week, Samantha, Rehma, Audrey and I have prepared our sets and written our scripts so that today we could begin to film.
Rehma, Samantha, Audrey and I decided that our movie would be based on a letter that we had written with all of our research. We would have a voice over (reading the letter) and images will slide in to show what we are talking about. We made wood panels out of popsicle sticks and painted a pizza box green so we would have a green screen. We have been working very, very hard.
