Christmas Fayre

Yesterday we had our fabulous Christmas fayre.  We all had  great fun. There were lots of different stalls and the best one was Santa’s grotto because everyone got a present if they entered. We were really pleased with the performances by Hobmoor Voices and Dhol drummers.

Thank you to children and families for attending and most of the staff for organising the event.

If you want more fun come to the disco on Friday this week.

Film and animation club – adventures in Imovie

After a few weeks of honing their animation skills in I Can Animate, the film and animation club have been trying their hand at Imovie, a great editing app that is either free or low-priced depending on your operating system (Apple only) and very simple to use.

Imovie contains built-in templates in a number of genres for making your own movie trailer – it is really simple to use as it provides the music and captions (which are editable) and provides the user with a storyboard to follow, telling them what kind of shots to get e.g. close-up. Simply record the shots, adjust the text as you wish, and Imovie does the rest!

 

The group then came up with some of their own movie ideas – here we have the team battling a zombie breakout, and then taking on criminal masterminds in an action film called ‘Agents of Hobmoor’ – enjoy!
