Congratulations to all of the children involved in the Music Video - Can't Stop the Feeling. It was placed 2nd in the MADE AWARDS, Music Video Category, Year's 5 & 6.
Our inquiry theme for this term was Playing My Part. So much has changed in our environment since the earthquakes. We wanted to showcase the East side of Christchurch and places in our community that we still all enjoy. We also wanted to show what has happened to some parts of the Central City after the earthquakes. We filmed in Gap Giller spaces (where buildings used to be) and artworks that have popped up in different. Our other aim was to make a music video that would involve a lot of children from our Year 4 to 6 studio.
We met with Elizabeth and all decided what song we would want to use to showcase where we live and the Central City. We watched the original YouTube video and took stats on the length of shots, what frames were used, how many different people were in the original video and what parts Justin Timberlake sung.
We had children who were in the ideas/storyboard group. They thought of all the different places that we could film. A group of them then went scouting for locations. After that we matched places to dancers. Anyone who wanted to dance could be in the music video. We held auditions for the person that would be Justin Timberlake.
We had groups of children that travelled to the Central city and around the East side of Christchurch. A group of children filmed children dancing. We danced and sang behind the camera, while children were dancing. After this, two children were responsible for editing the music video using iMovie. This was hard work because we loved the song so much we couldn’t stop singing while dancing.
