Lights, Camera, Action!

How lucky are we here in 4.3? (ooh, that rhymes!)

As you may know, in year 4 we've been reading different books by the fabulously talented Michael Morpurgo. Our class has been reading "The Nine Lives of Montzuma" and today, we we've had the opportunity to star in our very own feature film based on the story!

For the past few weeks, we've worked with a professional film crew to write out a script for the book and casting our roles. Today, after all our hard work and preparation, we finally had a chance to film! Take a look!

Josh and Jess played the farmer and his wife!

We were all members of both cast and crew so we had the opportunity to explore the inner workings of the movie industry :)

Samama working the camera
 Ibrahim, Sophie, Tegan and Courtney all took turns playing the title role of the cat Montezuma at different stages of his life.

We worked under the guidance of our expert, Keith from Read to Reel. He was very helpful!

We all had a chance to try out all the equipment- It was great!

How professional does Deneco look?
Libby played the sneaky black tom-cat. We can see you, Libby!

William in his kennel aka the school shed
Once our film has been edited, we will have our very own private viewing (how posh!) in The Mac. We can't wait to see how all our hard work turns out.

That's a wrap, folks! Keep tuned for our next blog posting =]


  1. This was a fantastic day making our film I enjoyed it.

  2. I am sooooo jealous of all the lovely experiences you have in year 4, but I'm glad you all had fun being camera people/film makers and of course not forgetting the ACTORS!! :)
