Westdale has hosted two 5 Hour Film Challenges this year, one at Halloween and one in May. They were both astounding successes with May’s participation rate at almost 200 students. The winner of the Halloween Challenge was The Written Love. May’s Challenge was a tie with Twinkle Toes and Forest Men both winning the medals. All of the videos are posted HERE.
Each team was given a line of dialogue that they had to incorporate into their film. All their filming had to be original and had to be completed by exactly 4:00pm. We screened all the entries and announced the winner in a special auditorium screening a couple of days later.
It was an amazing day where the students were completely engaged in creating their short films.
