Nu Works Short Film Project

This 6 weeks we had a BEAST project in Nu Works!!! We were put into groups and assigned a prompt.  My groups prompt went something like this, "There are many statues of men slaying lions, but if the lions carved the statues we would have a very different set of statues.  We were given jobs. I was the designer, Sam was the editor, Ashley was the sound person, Joan was the playwright, and Joy made the storyboards.  We decided to make are film a silent horror movie about pumpkins.  The idea was that pumpkins don't like to be carved and they might want to carve you if they could.  Every group had really nice videos but I like ours alot.  I think it turned out really funny.  This was by far my favorite Nu works project, because I think it was the most creative.  I just wish Ms. Edmondson had given us more guidance.  Still, overall I loved it and my group was great.

My project on space was very difficult and time consuming, but I think it turned out well in the end.  I explored all the types of space in a wacky and entertaining way.  I hope...  The two main problems with my video were that the pixels were very large, and the video overall was pretty jerky because it was a stop motion video.  I am SUPER exited about showing my video to the rest of the Nu Works class.  
My favorite performance out of the class was Heather's.  Her performance was a dramatic poem which really took you out of your comfort zone.  At the very end she even shouted at the audience.  I thought it was a great concept and presentation.

Nu Works

In Nu Works class we are learning about different types SPACE. I made this blog in class so I could learn about cyber space.  Making this blog was really fun, but it was kind of confusing.  I wish we could have had more time to perfect it.  The 2nd type of space that we learned about was the infinite space of the imagination.  We all lay down on the floor and closed are eyes, while we listened to a calming story.  At the end of the story we opened an imaginary box.  We sat up and we drew what we thought was in that box.  This experience was very low key.  I think it might be a stretch to ask a group of High School students to use there imagination.  However, it was still an interesting experience.  The last space we learned about was movement in space.  This class was my favorite class about space.  We learned about the different types of movement and we performed at the end of the class.  It was really fun and energetic.
