Flipping out

I really enjoy Non-Fiction Writing. Not only do we get a lot of work done, but Mr.Rayburn is always ready and willing to give constructive feedback on whatever it is we’ve just written. This all lies with the range of a ‘normal’ English class. Soon, however, we will begin the unorthodox part of this course: the Flip camera project.

We must each come up with a concept for a short video, just a few minutes long, that we will film during class hours. As part of our education to become twenty-first-century-literate, we will produce the entire film itself, from conception to planning to filming to editing.

This is incredibly exciting to me – I’ve not had the opportunity thus far to create an entire mini movie by myself. There is, though, a rather obvious caveat. We have to come up with the ideas ourselves, which is more difficult than it seems. Luckily, I have settled on a topic (finally).

I’m going to make a micro-documentary about how people fall asleep. That is, what little tricks or tips they may have for other people who, being stressed out over school and whatnot, just can’t relax enough to fall asleep. Hopefully, all will go well. We’ll see.
