We used digital media to 'Tell a Story Without Words.' First, we created a sequence of sounds, with an accompanying graphic score. Given a theme, we wrote a very short story with beginning, middle and end. We found sounds that could replace the words. We found symbols that could represent those sounds. We used those symbols to create a graphic score.
Then, we recorded our composition and matched each individual sound to a visual image or video in order to make a movie. This took a bit longer.
We took on different roles within the group as either 'Creative Director,' 'Sound Engineer' or 'Project Manager' so that we could sketch our storyboard for our movie and decide upon, create and record the sounds within a strict time schedule!
Thanks to our neighbouring classes, who were very understanding as we recorded sounds like 'children shouting' and spread out into the corridor for space!
Even when we had completed our movie, our project wasn't finished! We were then tasked with recording each stage of the process using BookCreator. We used the eBook that we made to help us with our final presentations. Check out the links to these eBooks below! Super work by all!
