This Week in Home Movies: The Art of Storytelling

Students’ original films this week cover everything from a world made of candy (yum!) to a story about saving our oceans and environment. We started the week by experimenting with different kinds of storytelling — acting games, drawing our own journey timelines, and sourcing household items to create our own “Youseum.” Next, we created sets for our own home movies sourced from cardboard boxes, paper, art supplies, and materials from around the house. Our film settings were inspired by our dream apartments, future worlds, and favorite spaces in nature. Artists then imagined what creatures or objects would live in their settings and made stick puppets to act out the story of their film. We spent the final days of camp writing and recording narration and shooting our films via Zoom! Click here to view more students’ artwork from the week.
