Monday Movie Madness

In celebration of the recent Sundance Film Festival, this week for our Monday activity, students went wild with our movie theme!

First, we acquainted ourselves with a variety of movie vocabulary words: shot, cinematography, drama, romance, animation, thriller—to name a few. We split up into groups and were assigned a genre. Our groups collaborated together to create an original, one-of-a-kind movie script completely in English! We spent the class period directing, acting, and filming our movies. Once the students were proud of their finished product, we gathered together for our very own Nomen Global Film Festival. We laughed, we cried, and we certainly enjoyed watching each movie.

Check out these movies written, directed, and performed by our Nomen Global students.

"The Magic Pencil." When Jane discovers that whatever she writes with her new pencil comes true, she has to be careful what she wishes for.

"Victor in Jail." What is Victor supposed to do when he is thrown in an American jail with little English vocabulary?
