Share, Interpret, Remix x3

Have you seen this amazing tri-class remix project?

Flick-It-On! Student Collaborative Film Making Challenge

It is a creative way to inspire remix, design, and critical thinking.

The Gist:

  • Three classes
  • Each make a silent video on chosen theme and pass it on (flick it on) to the next class.
  • That class interprets it and adds VoiceOver and credits and flicks it on.
  • The next class interprets emotion and action and adds music and credits, then flicks it on.
  • Presentations



Question/Extension
I wonder if there is a reflection/dialogue component to explain/discuss the choice in interpretation and remix to consider how the original projects morphed into something same/different than original intent?

This a project worth trying: students must interpret what they see in the context of the theme, then add their interpretation before passing it on for the next interpreters. Each group thinks through a different part in the making of a video. Imagine the learning conversations and debriefing!

How would you extend or remix this project?

  1. Hi

    We certainly do have “a reflection/dialogue component to explain/discuss the choice in interpretation and remix to consider how the original projects morphed into something same/different than original intent”. In our previous rounds we had the dialogue at the premiere. This year has seen the project move from a local project to a national project so the premiere will be online with the the reflection dialogue incorporated and we’re going to start using Edmodo too!

    Its a great project – my school has completed a mini version in school – we have 6 classrooms and rotated movies around slightly differently (based on last year’s model). The Flick-It-On! Team (Myself, Rebecca Power & Jamie Power) adapt the project slight each year to improve and runner smoother. What’s great about the project is how adaptable and useable it is!

    Thanks for a great response to the project! My favourite aspect is the collaboration with students from different schools.

    From Emma

    • Emma,

      Thank you for sharing your reflection piece. I figured it was built in, since it is such a well thought out project. Great thinking and planning!

      I look forward to following the project, and hope to adapt it in some way in my school. I may be contacting you for ideas!

      Sheri
