Students across Eanes ISD have been working hard to create films on the topic of Social Emotional Learning. At VVE, the lovely Ms. Abell and the amazing fifth grade teachers worked with students to share about story structure and film composing, and all fifth grade students had access to a Showbie class filled with the Festival de Eanes contest rules, expectations, rubrics, and submission guidelines. Students then wrote their scripts, planned their scenes, filmed, and edited using iMovie. They had some special requirements, including using a fish somewhere in their film, including the line, "Jeepers, how did you do that," and including extreme close-up and perspective camera angles. We were so excited that VVE had TWENTY-FOUR film submissions to the festival -- the second highest in the district of all the campuses, only one behind Barton Creek Elementary (25 entries). Our VVE Cardinals are creative! After submission, the films were then sent to off-campus judges for scoring using a special film-scoring rubric. The families of winning film-teams for top-scoring narrative film and top-scoring stop-motion animation films were emailed recently. The winning films will then be shown at the Alamo Drafthouse in late May, and moving-going attendees will vote on the final overall district winners. Because VVE had so many film entries, we were lucky enough to have THREE winning teams. Check out their award-winning stories below. Stay tuned for links to all the VVE Film Fest entries!
