Sunday's Agenda

Production work officially begins today for the two North Schools as they launch into the first stages of the creation of their video/film: firming up the concept, storyboarding, fleshing out characters, deciding on locations, some practice with the cameras ... and so on.

Full enough day (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.).

The students (North) have the coming week to begin and complete shooting (Monday to Saturday).

Looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds.

We went down South and spent a few hours with the students from the two South schools yesterday. They started fleshing out their concept into what seems to be a more abstract and arty piece (using dance, symbolism, etc.) in comparison to the North schools' documentary style leanings. We were commenting on the fact that South is more female in energy (nine females, one male) whereas the North group consists of seven males and three females and seems to have a more male energy to it.

Interesting to see how the two groups will develop in their own ways.

Je suis perdu, happy hippy.i'm not quite sure what the point of this assignment you/the students have to do. Are the schools in a competition or just doing it as a course?
I've seen many times in the newspapers about copyrights when ever people are working on productions. would that apply to the students when they go out to shot and record images, people, and even use songs? Does your island even enforce that policy?

question the moment!

Not a competition or course - a creative experience (involving learning, experimentation and production). They will be taking part in their own productions and coming up with their own ideas, so the issue of needing copyright for external people or other people's ideas will not apply. Of course copyright laws exist here - and with this in mind everything will be purely original - from the students. Tu comprends maintenant?
