Little Theatre Film Fest ’14

sundance_1014We made films in theatre class!

Almost any subject was accepted. Here’s the kicker, though: the video must be geared towards our NSHS community. Film teams needed to consider issues of staff, students, teachers, admin, coaches, custodians, particular departments, clubs, or teams.

The film must address a problem or a question here at NSHS AND offer solutions.  

Many students shot and edited their films using their smartphones. Our project info is here. The movie rubric is here.

  1. Loved how the shot of my film really captured everything that i wanted. I also really enjoyed filming it!

  2. The film that made the biggest impression on me was Hall Pass. I thought it was funny and it shows that high school theatre is fun with their use of comedy.

  3. I look forward to doing this!

  4. The film that made the biggest impression on me was “Get Your Sass To Class” because this video was actually helpful. I would definitely tell incoming freshmen to watch this and also some of my friends who are always late. It has easy steps and is also fun to watch.

  5. I think the film that made the biggest impression on me was “Hall Pass” from 3rd period. In the video, the group explained how to walk in the halls properly but they did it in a funny way that relates to high school students. I also like that it was relatable and stayed on topic
