Superhero*ines Film Club
In the first school semester of 2021/2022, Moviemiento was again hosted by Karlsgarten Elementary School in the beautiful Schillerkiez neighborhood in Berlin-Neukölln.
Once a week, the Film AG met in the afternoon and developed a miniseries. This time, the genre was short fiction films and the theme was “something with superheroes”. Initial improvisations quickly turned into story ideas. The students developed their own superhero*ine or antihero*ine characters as well as the complete script for their films. In two film teams, they created a miniseries of two short films with the title “The Superhero*ine School”.
All the students played their roles in front of the camera and stood behind the camera as part of the film team within the other scenes. Each team shot their films during an entire weekend from morning to night – almost like a real shooting.
Stop Motion Workshop
During Summer vacations 2021 Moviemiento cooperated with the Waldschule Plänterwald and organised an animation workshop as a trial offer for the Film AG. Supported by the forest educators, the animators focused on animals and plants from the forest, which served as role models for superheroes. Within one week, the participants learned to animate their superheroes from nature in short stop motion scenes.
At the end, the film was premiered in the presence of the parents.
