Zoo Conservation Film Reflection

Hi everyone,


(You have to click on the image to read it.)

Over the past few weeks, all of year 6 have been working on a film about an endangered animal.

  • Planning: In the planning stage of the film, we had to chose a animal out of the top ten, Lord Howe Island Stick insect, Asian Elephant, Philippines Crocodile, Gorilla, Tasmanian Devil, Lion, Helmeted Honeyeater, Orang-utan, Baw Baw Frog and The Australian Fur Seal. I chose the Helmeted Honeyeater because, I love birds. After we chose the animal we had to research our animal and right a script using the facts.
  • Excursion to Zoo: All of year 6, went to the zoo in our animal groups, to go and film our animal and our scripts. Well the group that I was in, someone has misplaced the cameras, so we had no footage. 
  • Editing: I edited my film by using Corel, because that is the software that I know how to use. I didn’t have any challenges because I know how to use Corel. But I had many successes, like I never had to relink and my voice overs were really good the first time I recorded them. So we had to complete our first draft and then use the feedback we received from others that watched them, to make our final draft.
  • Feedback:

    Your footage was good. Your voice over was clear and it had a strong message. I liked your text on screen. Your music suited your film. Great Job -Issy

    Amazing job! The music fitted that film so well! I also really liked the writing on the writing on the screen and just the film in general. For your P.T.C, I loved it when you faded out! It was really cool!! What I thought was really good, is that it doesn’t go for very long, but it really shows you what they deserve and what is happening. It was a really fantastic film Zoe! Be proud! 🙂
