we have chosen to enter the Live footage category of the ACMI Screen It
Competition. Although we still included some
animation in our film it is more a documentary.
The theme is Listen and our project opens with Shhh!.
Mrs Fraser, a former teacher at our school, visited the grade 6 students
and talked about what it was like when she went to school and when she was
a teacher. We used this talk as our sound track. Instead of illustrating
the story she was telling, we tried to show the difference, what it is
like today in our classroom. We look at all the plastic that has replaced
wooden products and we comment on the throw away problems we now face.
Half way through the video we change direction and show how we can do
something positive about our plastic problem.
We have a team working on the acting and filming. a team working on the
editing and we also have animators working on the designs to bring them to
life for our story.
