Year 8 Challenge Day 2019

Year 8 Challenge Day was a new, fun and exciting experience for everyone. We learnt about different movie genres, camera angles, choreographed fight scenes and so much more. For the first half of the day we learnt about films and then had lunch (with pizza, chips and ice cream!) After lunch we filmed our short and silent films and at the end of the day we watched all of the films. It was so much fun, I wish I could do it again!

Challenge Day was an eye-opening experience for me. I really loved having the freedom to run around everywhere. I especially liked learning how to fake-punch someone and putting that in our film. I enjoyed learning about the history of films and how they worked. I loved working in a team with different people and being able to be as creative as I liked. It was so much fun to film the short scenes as well because we could film anywhere in the school. Challenge Day was so much fun, I would definitely do it again!

Challenge Day was an unexpectedly awesome day! Along with free cookies and pizza with chips for lunch, we learnt how to stage punch our friends and choreograph believable fight scenes. At the end of the day we were able to create our own movies based on scenarios. After we had watched them all the winner received a prize and we all got lollipops! I really enjoyed this experience and would love to do it again!
