2014 Manaiaklani Film Festival




I Can Do Anything - I said ANYTHING!

Class 12 are a character filled class of kids. As the year started we knew that we had special talents to share. Many of us love animating, others love acting and we all love showing off.

First up we spent lots of time understanding the lyrics and planning our animations. The drawing of each lyric took ages and ages, but we are proud of what we have created. Our acting was the most fun part, especially watching Justus perform in the band.

We really hope you enjoy our animated MTV.

Superheroes

Class 12 has been learning about what it means to work hard, never give up and strive for success in all that we do. We have been talking about it, writing about and even making MTVs about it.

Here is a story written by David:

To be a superhero you have to have a positive attitude and be prepared for action. It is like trying to tackle the challenge and achieve excellence in learning. Work hard at life and succeed.


We then turned our ideas and writing into MTVs.
Here is Justus and Javan's

Our Learning Goals



We have been learning about what a top level athlete needs to do to succeed. We also thought about how some of those ideas might pertain to our own learning.
In this movie we share with you things that athletes do to achieve as well as our own success in our own learning.
We filmed all of this around a fun art activity where we turned ourselves in to athletes!

The Hueys

In class, we read the story about The Hueys and the New Jumper. As a class we decided that the message of the story was that it is pretty cool to be different and if you do then you could maybe one day even change the world.
The amazing Alosina (our super Uni student) came in to help us create our own story about The Hueys.

A Summer's Day





On the second to last day of summer, Class 12 felt confident enough to tackle a task independently, away from the confines of the classroom. We were using Explain Everything to record our Bonds to Ten.
On this bright, sunny day some kids went outside to find a quiet place to record. As you can hear, the cicadas wanted no part of that and "Audio bombed" Chastyti's Bonds to 10.





We wanted to share with you the fun ways we can enjoy our learning in all sorts of places.

See how focused Deavay is on his task while enjoying the cool breeze outside.

Dapper Man



A group of year 7 boys were struggling with getting quality work completed in the time frame. So when charged with the task to work together, agree on all decisions and complete a lip sync in 2hrs - there was fear and intrepidation.
With the right direction from a couple of unlikely leaders, the boys triumphed and experienced success at completing a quality, entertaining movie.
They may have even learnt a thing or two!

Happy

We started the year Happy and ended up even Happier!
A silly movie to celebrate the end of a fun and very happy 2013.
