Filming has begun!!!

For the last four weeks we have been:
- reading twisted fairy tales
- reading plays in School Journals
- writing twisted fairy tales
- writing and drawing storyboards
- writing scripts.

We are now onto the stage of filming our movies. We have three screens (green/white/black) set up around the classroom. We are using a Green Screen App to help set our backgrounds and are setting our actors/actresses to work and perform their different roles.

We can't wait for you see the final product.

Here are some of the metaphors that we just wrote in writing:

Kaydee and Karolin
