Writing teams - the serious work begins ...
The great work done in Session 3 meant that we had some great ideas around three key themes of Loneliness, Bullying and Perseverance. The film club team split into three writing groups and each were assigned with one of the themes and all of the associated notes and ideas from last week. The task - come up with a great story for that theme!
A young person wakes up and realises they are the only person in the world. How do they feel and what are they going to do? Has everyone disappeared forever or can they find everyone again?
A company run by old PC computers is threatened when a new company run by modern tablets comes onto the scene. Jealous, they try evil tricks to make the new company fail and when the new company retaliates, all out war ensues. No one wins.
A young person is excited to try out a new activity but they aren't very good and get teased. Instead of giving up, they practice and practice until they are fantastic and eventually earn the respect of everyone.
Pitching the ideas
The teams all presented their ideas to the rest of the film club, explaining their theme and story structure. There was some great teamwork in the writing groups with all team members having an input and the story created as a collaborative effort.
