Zoo Reflection Post

This Project is about lend a voice to a endangered animal in the SOS 10.


We started off going onto the Act Wild website and choosing one of the animals that were on that page. Then we started writing down facts onto a word document about the animal that we have chosen. I choose the animal because I have been interested to learn more about the animal. The next stage was writing our script into a word document using our facts that we have gathered. We spent 1-2 weeks writing our script and perfecting them. I think writing the script was one of the hardest things to do in this project.

Excursion to the Zoo

The Orangutans were out and about a lot when we were there so we collected a lot of footage on the day. There was a place at where the Orangutans were that was a supermarket with products that had Palm Oil in it and some products that didn’t have Palm Oil in it. It was one of the most interesting things there because when you scanned a product it would come up on a screen saying if it was bad for the Orangutans or good. For example Shampoo that is bad for the Orangutans because it contains Palm Oil.


The hard part was putting the film together. it took me about 2-3 weeks to make the film the I could make it.                                                                   When we started to edit I came along some problems. Like the music was to loud and my voice overs weren’t the best they could be.


We had one session to  look a peoples sheet and give them constructive feedback and helpful feedback.

Here is some feedback from some other people about me film….
