The Birth of a Super Hero film
In the following photos the the students are in the second stage of production. We are filming a super hero trailer featuring Bang and Electro. This trailer includes how the hero Bang gains the ability to teleport. During the production sequence we brain stormed then came up with a bare bone script. Then the script gets edited. After that we went into the part shown below (filming).
 The scene of Bang getting his mask is being slated

Original Banned Book Public Service Announcements

Media Magic has been learning about banned books, and why we think books shouldn't be banned. A book can teach us life lessons, help us improve our reading, or even inspire us to write our own books.

We made these Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to show what we have learned about the issue of banned books. To make the PSAs, we broke up into small groups and came up with original ways to share information with the public about this issue.
