Room 3 Manaiakalani filming/ The Struggle Is REAL!!

Right now I think another film idea could possibly be 'The Life Of A Pt Englander'. It could be about how Pt England students' days are and how they go. Another Idea could be 'Songs In Real Life' So a normal school conversation but using songs instead.

This Week Room 3 finally got to start filming our movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival next term. An annual event all the schools in the Manaiakalani partnership participate to create movies in each class of 13 different schools in our community. Each school get's the chance to gather at Sylvia park to watch everyone's movies on the biggest screen in the country!

I enjoyed filming our part in the movie the most because we had a really humorous scene . There was this really funny part when one of us couldn't get ONE sentence right (we filmed that scene a handful of times). I also liked how we got to wear just nice, normal clothes as our costumes.

The Most challenging part in my mind was writing the script and planning out each scene as I got selected to start it. I found writing the scenes really easy as the choice my partner and I thought of, got the majority class vote. Luckily we had already planned out our whole idea before it was chosen and knew what scene and what type of camera shot.

Next Time, I think I would have practised my lines a bit more. I wasn't the best at remembering them so I kinda just winged it. I didn't get much time to learn my lines anyways because I was always out of class rehearsing for our school Production: Live Stream. I also think our props could have been more thought out so we knew what we needed to use and didn't need.

Team 5 Speech Competition

Imagine competing to be one of the top 3 talkers in your class. Well last Friday Team 5 had a speech competition. The top 3 students from each class presented their speeches in front of at least 100 students. Speech topics went from being president for a day to cook island legends. I had two speeches in particular that I most enjoyed. All o the speakers also got judged by two teacher Ms Tapuke and Mrs Judd and the results will be told later.

I found that out of all the speeches two stood out to me. The most appealing speech in my opinion was by Amelia she talked with a clear voice, had good detail and she shared a personal story but did it confidently and with pride. Her speech was about her grandma and how she always had a smile on her face no matter what. I think that throughout her speech it started happy then slightly sad but ended happily.

The most entertaining speech to me however was by Mubashshir. He engaged with the audience by making us laugh at times but also having a serious side to his speech. It was about what he'd do if he was President for a day. He talked about building shelters for the homeless, take pollution down as well as dept bills and try making the world a better place. I think his ideas were good and keeping it serious but entertaining was one of his many talents during this process.

Even though all of the speeches were awesome these two stood out for me the most. I enjoyed listening to their speeches but it definitely took alot of guts for them to talk in front of us all. I hope that we get to do this again sometime. Maybe we'll have different people next time.
