Mary -Grade 11

“For this project, I wanted to create a mixed-media type of video so I used two mobile apps, royalty free audio and visuals, my own photographs and audio, and hand-drawn sketches. I used Pics Art and Line Camera to sketch the visuals while the audio was recorded raw in a bathroom. Then, I used Wondershare Filmora to add the lyrics and sync the visuals with the audio. I hope it made you feel something (this is 9 hours of patience). :’)”


Hailey -Grade 11

This is an animation about myself. I used video show, PowToon, and some royalty free music found in PowToon. I sketched each of the pictures and recorded my own voice too!”

Yong -Grade 9

This is a short antiphonal poem that Angeline, Daniel , Shin Thant and I made. Enjoy it !


Myat -Grade 9

“I’ve always been fond of shooting visuals and aesthetics, then later editing them. Adding them together with a soothing audio makes it even more pleasing for me. I thought out these clips for a long time, and I tried my best in making everything connect smoothly. I used Final Cut Pro (the usual) to make this, and the piano music is a snippet from Clair De Lune by Claude Debussy.”
