Flick-It-On! Collaborative Movie Making Challenge

A new Flick-It-On! project is starting on the 14th October 2013!  We are aiming for the project to go INTERNATIONAL this time round.  We have just finished the last project.

What is Flick-It-On!?

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:

Round 1

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)

Round 2

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)

Round 3

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)

Celebration

We will celebrate the movies the students have made in an online premiere – details to be announced.

How do we Flick-It-On!?

We use DROPBOX to ‘flick’ the movies on to each other.  We group classes that use PC together, and classes that use MAC together. We also aim to group students by age.
