Extension Film Festival Movie Roles

This term for Extension we have been making our film festival movie. We all have had things to do in this project I have been an actor, animator and editor for our movie.

I had to animate a bubble to get bigger and go across the screen at the same time and then make it pop. To do this I used photopea. I think it turned out really well. The drawing looked a lot like a bubble because I used different colours and opacity and piled them on top of each other. The animation looked quite smooth but I think I could improve when it comes to making it look more like it popped instead of just fading away, other then that I think I did a good job at it.

For acting I had to lie down on the ground then stand up and run in a race for one scene which was not too hard to do. For another scene I had to ride a bike but then stop and then look around then keep riding. For another scene I had to look at an estuary with my hand on my forehead to block rain from getting in my eyes, and I had to move my head left and right as if I was scanning the estuary. The hard part was doing exactly what the videographers wanted and getting it just right but I think I did a good job at that.

Finally I did a small bit of editing our movie. I got a bit confused with adding in voice overs but I had fun doing the other stuff I did, like putting the clips in the right place and making them the right length. One of the clips I edited was actually the one where I had to lie down and then get up and run in a race.

Those were my roles and what I did for them for our film festival movie. My favourite role I had was being an animator, because I enjoyed drawing pictures then making them move. My favourite part of animating is seeing the final result.

Year 5&6 Extension Storyboard Reflection

This term our project for extension has been to make our film festival movie part of this was making our storyboard, we all had to take part in this part of making our movie, everyone split into different  groups for different parts of the storyboard I was storyboarding the first part of the movie with Cayden and Jaxon. The job of storyboarding was made easier because the whole thing was based off a book and we where using it as our script so we could base our story board on what was happening in the book. We first had to brain storm ideas using our part of the book which was given to us after we had some ideas we got our storyboarding papers to make the real storyboard. there were three squares for each scene of our part,  in the top square we put a little draw to give the visual idea of what was happening, in the next square we wrote what part from the script  this was happening in then, in the final square we put notes for that scene like the camera angles or what was happening or if something was animated, then we made another one until we did all of the part of the script we were given, next we had to cut our notes and squares out and glue them on to the main story board with everyone else’s squares then we were done and we had our storyboard.Even though it took a while it was worth it. Here is some of our storyboard.
