The Swap - Manaiakalani Film Festival



Gloria, Kaycee and Tyla began writing the story for this movie back in May. Originally the story involved many characters with intertwined stories. It was really quite elaborate. Upon storyboarding the shots, the girls discovered that we needed far longer than 3minutes to be able to tell the complete story. Therefore, we decided to cut back the story to simply two of the characters but maintain the intertwined storyline as best we could.
The most fun part was certainly choosing songs to be able to convey the message and tell the story - we hope we did a good job.
Because of really clear storyboarding, filming was a breeze - not to mention having great actors in Isara and Tyla.
Editing really was the trickiest part of the whole process. After saving every fourth frame of the filming, importing the jpegs to Hyperstudio, they built an animation around each scene. This became quite confusing and certainly time consuming. The girls had to think really carefully about the scenes, the animation and the message.
Eventually each animation was imported into iMovie and the story began to take shape.
The whole process of putting together this movie was long and involved, but Miss King is super proud that we were able to tackle this new technique in movie making.

  1. I think your movie was well thought and was good with how you wrote your storyboard.

    My favourite part was when the boy found her undys it was really funny.

    I was woundering about what do you learning from this.

    That was a incredible movie. That must of taken a lot of work. How many slides of animations did you have to do? Was it fun making the movie? Was it fun going out for a drive and getting some Milk shakes? I really loved your movie. It was like..... OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! You guys have to teach me how to make fantastic movies like those. You guys had really put detail into it. Thank you room 15 for making a great movie and representing it at the Manaiakalani Film Festival in Sylvia at the Hoyts Cinema. Your movie makes me want to watch it over and over again.
    Keep up the incredible work.
