The project for last weekend was a book report project. All year they’ve had to do “book talks” each month about a book they were reading. This month the teacher decided to mix it up and gave out a variety of options. Lex decided to do a book trailer about a Minecraft book. Eve chose the option of making a playlist of songs to describe the first Artemis Fowl book. She had a great video project started with images from the internet that resemble the characterless, but when she started looking for music she got frustrated with the difficulty in finding the songs she wanted in good quality, not remixed, and, of course, for free. Alan and I had a good laugh. We remember those days of downloading free music! She ended up just doing a poster for a different book.
Lex, on the other hand, perservered and made a really amazing book trailer! Alan helped by recording Lex playing the scenes in Minecraft, then Lex used WeVideo to put it all together, with sounds and voice overs. It came out great!
