The Meeting Scene – with GreenScreen!

Well hello there! It has been ages since I last posted here! Been busy with Year 6 stuff and other things on my website. Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?

First, we watch the film that we have edited so far. In the words of 11-year-olds everywhere, ‘Shout Out’ to Michelle for editing some sound effects in to the film.

My idea, to fix the split-screen problem was to use GreenScreen to put a picture of human-Clara in the background, then have clone-Clara in front of the GreenScreen. But, and this is a big but, because the camera was too far away from the GreenScreen to fit the whole of Clara in to the shot, when we edited it in with iMovie, the Clara that was filmed today was a lot smaller than the Clara that was filmed a few sessions ago.

Finally, we discussed what the ending of Run School Run 2 will be like. But to know, you’ll just have to wait until the final film is produced…

Session 9 – Alma, editing and a little bit of blogging

In session 9 we started off by watching a clip called ‘Alma’:

This clip was an award winning animation by French (actually, Spanish) people and has won 4 competitions and several Oscars. Here is what Leonardo, GMan and DJess posted about it. I think that everyone who signs their name on the wall is the next victim of the evil, self-killing shop. Unluckily, Alma signed her name on the wall and the doll popped up in the window. Clara had an interesting idea on the fact that they monitor you through the window on the wall and pop up an appropriate doll.

After watching and discussing we continued editing our trailers while Michelle took us out, to teach us to post. I taught Leonardo.

A great session and expect to see some posts coming soon!
