Our Mini Documentaries

Your mission is to create a mini documentary film about a mystery person drawn randomly from a container.

WALHT (We Are Learning How To)
  • Use eLearning to gain relevant information about a person or thing
  • Use multimedia (sight, sound and motion) to compile a 3 minute movie to share our insights with others

Success Criteria
Your documentary includes:
  • Basic information about the focus person
  • Use of movie making software (Movie Maker, iMovie)
  • Titles and credits
  • Still photos
  • Narration explaining the photos
  • Movie footage - video of yourselves talking/answering questions about their person (and perhaps acting out a short related scenario.)
  • Appropriate music where suitable
