This video explains some of the process I went through as a teacher when creating a film festival movie.

How I made my Film Festival movie.mp4


The children liked the making of emojis to show their feelings. They found it easy to write about their own ideas, feelings and emotions which was great. We started to discuss the idea what not everyone see facial expressions as the same but I would have liked to have pushed this ideas even further. I think the idea worked well and is one I will use in the future. Due to the time of term and the group of children the lesson felt rushed, however I do feel it was valuable.
