My toy movie

Our school-wide Inquiry was called Toy Story and I had the chance to create an imaginary toy.
I started by designing my toy using Google Draw. I then animated it using Hyperstudio and put it into iMovie to edit my animation. I had to use Hyperstudio again to create a stack with interactive buttons. I used Quicktime to make a screen recording of my interactive stack. Next I then used an iPad and iRig Microphone to record the voiceover in AudioBoo. I had to figure out how to download my voiceover so I could add it to my screen recording in iMovie.

I’m not finished yet.

Using Garageband I made a neat soundtrack. Finally, I uploaded my completed movie to vimeo and then embedded it on my blog to share.
I hope you enjoy it.

Marshmallow Monster

On a cold and dark night, the only light came from the moon and camp fire. Surrounding it was lots of trees and a clean little lake. Right in the middle of everything sat a small boy with a long and pointy stick and on that stick sat a white marshmallow. A big green tent was laid out near an enormous tree.

Suddenly a huge green creature with yellow eyes and sharp teeth came splashing out of the clean little lake. The creature look like he was searching for food. Then he spotted the little boy and stared at him like he was his next victim.

Creeping up towards the boy, the creature opened his enormous mouth like he was getting ready to eat. Finally the boy noticed that something was behind him and turned around quickly.

I LOVE MY NETBOOK!!! I just like to thank Mrs Burt for creating Manaiakalani, for bringing netbooks to our school and for creating the wireless internet TLN.

I also would like to thank my mum for paying for my netbook as well as TLN. Did you know, that all our student’s mums together pays 1/2 a million for our netbooks and to help spread TLN so that we can use it to learn at home.

Some people think  we just use netbook to play games and watch cool movies but we actually use it as a learning tool and to share stuff with the world like how I am right now. I like to share things through blogger

The movie that I really enjoyed was daydreamer by Pt England School. The reason why I like it is because there was some really cool animation, it was really funny and the filming was really good . I like the part when Levi throws the ball up into the air but then it comes back and hits his head. I think that that this cool movie deserves a 10 out of 10!!!  If you get the chance to you should watch Daydreamer just click Daydreamer .

The Big Game

“Go Jake!!!”my Ben shouted loudly on the sideline. Jumping in the air sadly I twisted my ankle. “Timeout!!!” the reef caled well blowing his whistle.

“Are you ok?” the reef ask. “I twisted my ankle and it really hears” I screamed. “Do you need a doctor?”  the reef ask. “Yes” I answered in pain.

“Is anyone a doctor here?” The reef caled. It was silent until a little caled out “I am, I’m a doctor” Then a little man came running down the stairs. He was as short as a dwolfe, as fat as a hippo, he wore big black glasses and funny clowes.

The little doctor looked at Jakes leg. “ah you definitely twisted your ankle, you need to go to the hospital” The doctor said. So they took Jake to the hospital and they fixed his leg

Today My Life Begins

My friends and I made this movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Our whole class had the chance to make a movie. We had to plan, prepare, film and edit all by ourselves. Our class had our own film festival to select the best two, to be shown at the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Here is my group's entry!

The bull rider

“Which bull will I be riding?” I asked. “Well Paul you will be riding, Bobby.” he replied. “Bobby, b b but the minute I get in the arena I will be died” I said in fear. “Well, the boss made the choice so go talk to him about it” he said. “Okay, where is he?” I replied. “Oh about that. He is in New Jersey” he said. “I can't fly to New Jersey I won’t be back in time” I said. “ Then you will have to vs Bobby” He said.

The next day was the day was the day the match was on. Nervously I entered the ring. “go” The ref said. Lepping above the big bull I thought to myself “I am going to break the world record and become the worlds greatest bull rider” But sadly my life came to an end and I die. The end

A ghostly night

“Its time for bed” Dad said. “Ok” I replied while hopping in. Once I got into bed dad came to wish me good night. “good night, sweet dreams” Dad said.

Suddenly I heard something. It sounded  like someone was walking on our roof trying to break in. I rushed under my big warm blanket to hide. “Its probably just the rain” I whispered to myself and went back to sleep.

Then I heard it again but even louder. It got closer and each time It got closer, the sound got louder. I became more and more scared as it got closer.

Then dad came to check on me to see if everything was ok. Of course the noises stopped. “Dad I can hear something on the roof, I think someone is trying to break in” I said.  “It probably just the rain now try to go to sleep” replied dad. “ Ok” I replied. Then Dad left and went to sleep

Finally I fell asleep. Everyone in the house fell asleep. Waking up I heard something flying down the chimney. “ Who’s there?” I shouted. Suddenly dad woke up he called the cops quickly.

Dad got my brother and I and we hid in the wardrobe. We hid for what seemed like ages!

Finally the cops came and took the man with them. “Thank you so much  for helping me” dad said.
“You're safe now the man is gone” said the kind cope.

Without a care in the world, a small girl skipped  through the narrow cobblestone alleyway. Alma had been told to write her name on the town blackboard. When you are 9 years old you have to write your name on this blackboard. It was a traditional thing in this village. Alma wrote on the blackboard. A..L..M..A.. Hearing an old machine working behind her, she turned around in surprise. She saw a doll that looked exactly like her.

Staring at the doll, Alma wiped the frost that had gathered on the shop window to get a better view of the doll. The doll disappeared silently. She crept over to the door. Alma thrust her hand out and pulled down the handle. It was locked. Angrily she walked away and grabbed a snowball and threw it to the door.

Walking away from the shop, suddenly the door followed open. Alma turned around with excitement, and ran to the door. Taking a step in the shop, Alma looked around. Everything looked so threadbare. Looking around, Alma saw the doll on a table. Peering at the identical looking doll, she stumbled towards it, one step at a time.

Suddenly, she heard something. Alma looked down, and saw a little toy on the floor. It was a boy pedaling a tricycle. Alma put the bike upright, and it cycled circles around her, then over to the door. BANG! It closed just in front of him. The boy kept on cycling forwards, slamming into the door over and over again. He looked as if ….....

Alma looked around, and wondered where the doll went again. It had disappeared. She then saw it again, on the shelf next to other dolls. Climbing the sofa underneath her, Alma was ignorant of everything but the doll that looked like her. As she was reaching up for the doll, all the other dolls moved their eyes and followed her. But Alma didn’t notice anything.

When Alma’s hand touched the doll, there was a ZAP!! Her whole life flashed before her eyes. Alma looked around. She couldn’t move. She couldn’t smile. She couldn’t do ANYthing but look around and breathe, which became heavy. Then everything made sense. The boy on the bike (which was still slamming into the door over and over again) WAS trying to escape, and all the other dolls were trying to warn her, but they could only look around.

In horror, Alma saw the next doll wheel up..... The End

Sprinting toward the finish line I came 2 place. “You're fast” I said to Tame the person I was trying to beat. “ 1,2,3 come over here” one of the teachers said.

As we got closer we thought we were in trouble or something like that but she was actually picking the finalists. She then said to wait here for the others. I was so excited.

Walking to the start line again, I suddenly got nervous. “Take your mark, get  set, bang” mister J said and I was off.

Running off, my feet started hurting but I still cared about running. It started hurting even more but I just ignored it and kept on running.

I came 4th and Lee just beat me, but I was still proud of myself for not giving up - even though my foot hurt. Next  was Iisa. Then Ron. I was limping away with pride.

Retell A Movie Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

Walking down the path I was real starving. Suddenly I found a coin. It was just sitting right on the edge of the drain.  I picked it up and ran to the nearest shop.

“One bar of chocolate please” I said very excitingly . “Which one”, the shopkeeper replied . “ “The biggest one you’ve got please” I continued kindly. “Ok” He replied while giving me my bar. I wolfed it all down my throat.

As I walked out of the shop, I remember about grandpa Joe. “I must buy one for grandpa Joe, he is so kind to me”, I thought in my head. So I went back to the counter and ask for a normal chocolate bar. So he gave me one.

I opened the door and went back outside. Turning around there were a lot of people jostling through the newspaper man. Sneaking to the bunch of crowds, I listened very carefully. “There is one more golden ticket”.

I turned around and thought of something. “I might have one more chance about the ticket”. Walking to the nearest corner, I reached into my bag and grabbed the bar. Opening the corners I was really nervous. It was there. My hand went up in the air with a great happiness on my face.

“The little kid had found”, A lady came and grabbed my hand and took me to the crowd. “Run Charlie”, A man shouted. I listened. I ran for my life to show Grandpa Joe.
