These are the three videos I made in my old school. I needed to tell students that I would be serving food in the tuck shop every week, so I thought I would do it in a fun way with a silly video. I made a new one each year for three years. I hope you like them!
Tuck Shop One - Sleeping
I think I made this in March, 2013. It's very short and simple, but my students liked it. The idea is that I'm being lazy in the English Room, and Mr Gary wants me to do something useful like work in the tuck shop. I thought it would be fun to give him some magic powers. Can you guess how I made myself disappear and reappear?
Tuck Shop Two - Video Games
I made the second video in October, in the new school year. I was inspired by another filmmaker who makes videos about computer games (I can't tell you who he is, though - it's for grown-ups only!) This video is longer and more complicated, but really the story is the same as the first one. The game I'm playing is Xenon 2. What other things could I be doing in the English Room instead of working?
Tuck Shop Three - The Finale
This was the last video I made before I left that school in 2014. I wanted to try doing the light sabre effects and to put together a "fight" scene. It was quite difficult to do, but I had lots of help from some other teachers. I think this video concludes the trilogy by showing that Mr Gary and I are friends, despite our "disagreements"! Would you have chosen a different ending to these videos?
