To celebrate the publication of Film In Action which is now available in book shops and on Amazon, we are delighted to announce a film-making competition in which your school can win the following fantastic prizes:

  •  A license for Camtasia Studio 8 which helps you create professional videos easily  (value 250 US dollars).
  • A licence for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 which allows you to edit, organise and share digital images  (value 150 US dollars).
  • A  copy of Film in Action.

Your students are almost certainly creating their own videos and short films with their mobile phones outside school. We think it’s a fantastic idea to bring this creative video and film-making into the language learning classroom. In Film in Action there are lots of activities which encourage students to create their own videos. To help you get your students creating short videos in your classes our competition uses an activity from Film In Action in which students have to make their own ‘how-to’ videos using a mobile phone or other mobile device.  Follow the activity as outlined below:

 

make_a_how_to_video

Their videos should be no longer than 5 minutes and they have to upload them to YouTube and, you, their teacher, should send a link to the video to kieranthomasdonaghy@gmail.com before Monday 1st June. You should also briefly (in less than 100 words) describe your teaching context, name of institution,  the names of the students who made the video, and any other relevant information. All of the videos would be published individually in short posts on the Film in Action site. The winner will be announced on Thursday 4th June.

Here’s an example of the type of video your students could create.

 

I hope you and your students enjoy the activity and the competition.
