The Flick it On Movie
The student collaborative film making challenge!
This starts on October 14th 2013.
Flick-It-On! is a collaborative film making challenge for students from Year 1 – 8. The project is now in it’s fourth year and has developed from a 3 day film festival to a 10 week project where students collaboratively and creatively produce a digital narrative from across many different schools.
So how does it work?
Teachers sign up their class and the organisers team your class with 2 other classes from different schools to collaboratively make movies based on a theme. Each year we ‘tweek’ the project based upon feedback from teachers and students. One teacher from each team will be the coordinator. The 2013 rotations are:
Each class makes a SILENT MOVIE based on the theme, adds a title at the beginning and adds credits at the end. Then they Flick-It-On! to the next class. (4 Weeks)
Each class watches the silent movie they have been sent. Students interpret the story of the silent movie, write a script and add VOICE OVER and SOUND EFFECTS. They add credits. Then they Flick-It-On! to the next class. (2 Weeks)
Each class watches the movie they have been sent (it now has voice over & sound effects). Students interpret the movie and then add MUSIC TO SHOW MOOD & EMOTION. They add credits and then Flick-It-On! back to the class who made the original silent movie and the groups team leader. (2 Weeks)

The blurb from the website
We invite you to enter the gateway and explore the forest. Many paths await you. Along the way you'll find 'active' links leading you into the wonder, fascination and horror of well-known fairy tales and their not so well known meanings. Discover the way contemporary visual artists, photographers and filmmakers have re-imagined many traditional tales.
This is a site where there will be many ways for you to add your own stories, images, ideas and interpretations through using the CREATE and DISCUSS buttons. Visit the GALLERY at the heart of the forest to view artist exhibitions, contribute your own re-imaginings and meet other members of the Re-enchantment community."
