This summer at the library, they hosted the first ever Teen Film Fest. At the beginning of the summer, there was a movie-making workshop for a week, that my friends and I went to. In the class we talked about acting, lighting, directing, scripts, sets, all that kind of stuff. It was really cool, and we learned a lot. I had a lot of fun working on our videos. We did all the filming in one day, and I wanna thank the Hubbards for lending us their video camera! The editing took a little longer, but my parents bought iMovie '09 for Bea and I to use and it is AWESOME! It's so much better than iMovie '08 and it was really easy, too. The Film Fest was a red carpet event, and they encouraged everyone to dress up for it. First there was a belly-dancing performance. We had been working on the choreography all summer, but I couldn't be in it since I missed the last practice. Then they showed all the movies. There were 7 in all. After they showed them all every body got to vote for their favorite one, in each category, kinda like the Oscars. It was really cool, and the library might be doing it again next year! They're putting a disc with all of the movies on it for people to check out, too. Well, that's all I have to say for now! Thanks everybody for being so supportive and coming to the Film Festival!
Here's the first video "What's it all Mean?" This one won the award for 'Best Script'
We finally just got it up on YouTube. We had to change the song in the credits because of the copyright. The first time there was no sound. So here it is! Hope you enjoy!
And this second one "What Happened Before?" This one won the award for 'Best Directing', 'Best Acting', 'Best Costuming', and 'Best Picture' Hope you enjoy!
It was a really fun experience, and I can't wait to make more movies now!
