It was so rewarding watching our nine middle school drama project students dive into the plethora of roles needed to execute a Hollywood -style movie trailer using iMovie! Some students were only comfortable acting behind our fabulous student-made monster mask, while others wanted to be ‘on camera’ as much as possible, and others still gravitated toward filming or operating ‘special effects’ such as flickering lights. In the end, after three days of filming all over the school (including the walk-in freezer!) we had far more scenes than was possible to use. Students were excited to choose one scene of their very own to make ‘the final cut.’ Watching the trailer together during the cast party was an apt reward for a job extremely well done!
