Last Day of PNG

Today, we set the students loose and let them do whatever project they wanted.  We had a number of songs get produced, a couple movies got shot and some beautiful artwork got made in Photoshop.

It was great to see the students show off all of the skills they'd learned this summer.

Video Finish Line

Here are the finished videos all culled from the same footage, but all drastically different.  Some don't even show the races!  Good job (if you finished)!

Videos... CONTINUED!

We started out today by taking a look at the video that Brian cut together.  Hopefully it gave some of the kids some ideas for things they might want to try while editing their video.

But probably not.  Let's face it, this project is like pulling teeth.  When kids sign up for PNG the first thing they say they want to do is make movies.  But, part of the process of teaching kids to edit movies is their inevitable realization that editing movies is really hard and not very fun.  Oh well, if we can get one kid to learn and enjoy editing movies this unit will be a success.
