Challenges

Drama Challenge

For your Drama transition task you are going to create a short, funny story with the title ‘Painters and Decorators’ – this will be done either using a series of pictures or a Stop Motion App (phone or a tablet). Have a look at the linked MP4 file to get an idea of what you’re aiming for.

  • This will be in the style of a Silent Movie therefore, there will be no speech needed.
  • The story should be a comedy (things going wrong in a silly / funny way, for example paint on the head, dropping things etc.)
  • If you wanted to add music in the background you could also select a piano based track from YouTube that suits the style of your creative funny story (send the link in with your video).

You can present your story in either of the following ways

  • Draw a story board / cartoon strip – as pictured you could sketch your creative funny story into a series simple images

  • You could use household objects (e.g. teddies to be the characters) or create cardboard cut-outs and act the story out using them – you could video this or take photographs of each part of the story (just make sure you don’t get your face in the video or photo). Our Year 7 students have also been using Free Stop Motion Apps that are in the App/Play Store (Stop Motion Studio is very easy to use)

By using the above formats you should be able to attach what you have created to an email and send it in digitally – either as a photo of your storyboard or your short Stop Motion production. Please ask your parents to do this from their email address and send to yatesk@heart-england.co.uk
