Manaiakalani Film Festival 2016

Each year Manaiakalani (our cluster of schools) holds an annual Film Festival at Hoyt's Cinema in Sylvia Park Shopping Centre.  Each class submits a 3 minute movie, and has the opportunity to attend a viewing session with other students from their school.  We even have a night viewing for family and friends to come and see a select number of movies from across the cluster.

This year, the students of Room 6 Maths put together a movie entitled "The Hunt for the Manaiakalani People."   We had a lot of fun filming at our neighbouring Pt. England Reserve/Beach and farm.  We were even able to catch a few drone shots flying over our amazing area.

We hope you enjoy our movie!

  2. Hi there,

    I thought it was neat how you had no words but I still understood the story line. I also thought that your camera angles were really cool. How did you come up with the idea for your film? Checkout LH9's videos at http://lh92016.blogspot.co.nz/

    1. Hi Sophia! We had a lot of fun experimenting with different camera angles and locations when making our film. The idea for our film began because the main boy in our movie reminds our teacher of the actor Julian Dennison.

  5. Hi Room 6,
    I really like how you made your own version of the hunt for the Wilder people, I have watched the actual movie and this is the same thing as the real version, a kid going outside and exploring. Even though halfway through he came back to school, it still was fun to watch.
    Keep it up,

  7. Hey Room 6,
    I was so impressed with the way you recorded and edited this wonderful movie. One thing that was really awesome is the way Bobby-Jon and Sabrina were talking it takes a lot of hard work but you guys made it look easy as. It was really entertaining as well, but I also wonder who those 2 boys on the right were while Bobby was learning to use Chromebooks. (FYI its me and Mitchell.) From Ajani

    I wonder if there is going to be a sequel to this movie?

  48. Hi I am Haki this is a very funny moive you made. Great job. It was funny when he meets his girl friend and when he pops out of the tree from no where. Did you think when he went to step on the rocks it was post to hurt him?? And the shots were cool like when he saw the girl the background changed. You could do better by making him be all camo? Great job keep it up:D.

  49. Dear film creators, I loved the way that the little boy did not have any friends and then the kind girl came along and showed him some cool things they do at their school.

  50. Hi my name is Ben from Kaniere School. This video is so inspiring to go out in the wild for a little bit. I might stay outside for a day for a little challenge for me and my sister. What our the characters names I think they could be really interesting? The editing must of been really hard with all the cuts in that movie. It's might be my favourite movie yet. How did you manage to edit it because i'm not too sure how to edit a video.

  52. Malo e lelei Room 1. My name is Mehmet from Room 23 at Owairaka District School. This movie was comic gold for people from around the world and New Zealanders and the funniest part was when the kid got mud and smeared it on his face to look like some warrior and it was great so good job for making it.

    Keep up the good work!
