Specialist teachers were looking for a way to celebrate the last weeks of our Virtual Classroom, so a group of teachers from specialist subject areas collaborated from apartments around Ho Chi Minh to create the first ever BIS Virtual Film Festival.
Students were set the challenge of creating a 2 minute film over a 2 week period and they were provided with a website created by teachers that had every resource that they would need to make it happen. Within the website there were tutorials of how to film stunts, create digital special effects, compose music, create sound effects, costumes, disguises, dubbing over voices and much more.
As the two weeks neared its completion, digital video files began to be submitted and the quality, innovation and creativity was beyond all predictions. Families had worked together to make films, students had painstakingly created perfect animations or coded their movie instead of using actors. Over 130 films were submitted and we estimate over 300 students, parents, grandparents, friends and pets joined in the process!
