Movie Tips

Movie Making Evaluation

I think that a range of camera angles is the most important element to movie making because if you don’t use a variety of camera angles your movie won’t be that fascinating.

I put good actors first and tripod second because if you want your movie to be good you have to have good actors because good actors give your movie more entertainment. And if you have a tripod for camera your movie will be still and not shaky.

I think the least important element is a flash camera because who cares if you’ve got an ugly camera. You don’t really need a flash camera all you are doing is filming.

Other important elements that aren’t included here are.

  • Time
  • Motion
  • Composition
  • sequence
My biggest light bulb moment while learning about movie magic was when we were learning about different camera angles and how they help us to make our movie more interesting.

Room 8 have been studying Movie Magic. Part of making movies, is speaking clearly. We put this into practice by planning, crafting, practicing and presenting speeches. The topics we chose, were topics that would influence the thinking of others. We hope you enjoy!

Speech Reflection

How did you feel about presenting your speech to the class?
At first I felt nervous then when it came to the end for the feed forward part I felt better because my class gave me and my partner good comments about our speech.

What was the hardest part about preparing a speech? 
The hardest part about presenting my speech was when I had to talk clear and loudly so that the audience could hear what I was saying to them.
What did you enjoy most about speeches? 
The part I enjoyed about speeches was when me and my partner co-operated to finish our wonderful speech.
How could you improve your speech making next time? 
I could practise my speech in front of the mirror at home so that I can use more hand gestures.
