Student Created Movies Earn Academy Awards!!

The fifth graders did the job of hundreds of professionals as they wrote their own screenplays, became actors and actresses, and mastered chroma key green screen technology.

In post production, they performed the tedious work of editing as well as becoming sound designers, visual effect artists and title/credit creators.

What a way to showcase their immersion in research about a chosen animal's adaptations, habitat and diet.  And the Oscar goes to...
