Manaiakalani Film Festival Movie - Dear Me

This is Room 5's Manaiakalani Film. I hope you enjoy watching this film!


Being Young
Our movie from room 5 at Glenbrae School is all about the positive ways of enjoying life.
We came up with a few ideas of how we can achieve them.
Being young is great and making mistakes is OK.
We need to enjoy and make everyday count.
Learn everyday and continue being positive.

Science Intensive Week: Special Effects


Special effects are a visual trick which is used in films. Our school is learning about special effects such as, make up, lighting, props and making realistic effects like smoke, fog, snow etc. It's been an interesting science intensive week! We even had a chance to create fake blood and also got to see how make up people put fake scratches and sores on the actors body.  We've had a such a great time!
