A while ago, my colleague and I organised an elective class called moviemaking. I wrote about it here. I realised that I never actually posted the result, of which we were very proud. 🙂

Just now I noticed that some of the audiofiles have been removed with the following message: “This video contains an audio track that has not been authorised by WMG. The audio has been disabled. More about copyright”… Fantastic. It’s a fricking student movie! 😦


So the class went really well and we needn’t be worried at all! I had a lot of fun in the class on Wednesday showing them different clips and talking about movies in general, and my colleague did more creative stuff with them today. One week into the ten week long term, and we have managed to decide on a genre. And they chose (drumroll please…) A funny SCI-FI MUSICAL…

I think we have a great term ahead of us… 🙂

Me and a colleague have decided to do a class (two lessons a week) on language learning through moviemaking. Ever since I did a project with my students through the months of June & July we’ve pondered the possibility of doing a bigger and better project, learning from the mistakes we made the first time around. It’s really exciting, and we had so much fun planning this and writing up the syllabus. Now it’s the night before the big day and I go first, teaching the introduction class as well as getting started on genres. I must admit I am a bit nervous… I really shouldn’t be because we’ve planned it so well! And yet – maybe that’s exactly why… I’m so keen for it to go well, so the butterflies are using the insides of my belly as a racecourse. I sort of just have to let it go the way it goes…

Here are the youtube links to our first movie (three installments)
