This is Ms. Korisa here. I am one of the teachers here at the Take 2 Creative Camp and I thought it would be great to participate in our blog! The program is coming to a close soon and the kids have been working hard on their final project. For those who don’t know, let me fill you in.
This is the most difficult and time-consuming project we have done all summer. The teens were split into groups and had to write a script surrounding a specific genre and have their movie fail AND pass either the Bechdel test or Deggans test. Then they had to rehearse in their groups. Then they have to act in the movie. Then they have to help edit them. And then…they can reveal the final product.
This assignment is a daunting task, but these teens stepped up to the challenge. We are in the middle of filming our movies and it has been going awesome. The teens are branching out of their comfort zone and using their imagination to create each movie. We really wanted to show you what this process has been like so Take 2 Teen, Elias, filmed some behind the scenes footage for you. Please enjoy and I’ll see you all soon!
