Interviewing Movie Makers!

Room 8 got the opportunity to ask some real movie makers about their experiences and get some tips to take their movies to the next level. Here is some of the key questions from the interview!

Why is this movie so important to you?

This movie was important for me because it was a chance to get together with my cousins and do something together. I think they’re all talented and really want to give everyone the opportunity to showcase their talents.

Did it relate to your personal life?

The story is very personal to us. Our parents came from Tonga. So it’s about how fortunate we are to be here.

How did you get the movie done in 48 hours?

A lot of teamwork. Good planning. We had to plan as best as could. But like everything, you run into problems. Because we had a big team, everyone had their own talents, so everyone could help with solving problems.

Was there ever a time that you just wanted to give up?

There were two times. One at 4am in the morning, and again at 6pm. It was everything. It was so close to the deadline. We had an hour to go, and we needed to change some subtitles. While Ia was trying to edit one part, I came in and said “We need to change the subtitile.” Everyone was stressing saying “This much time to go! This much time to go!” At 6 o’clock, I had finished the editing, and I was really tired at that time.

Was the forty eight hours all worth it at the end?

Yes. It was a good experience. You learn what people are like under stress.

If you could give advice to people that only had 3 minutes to make a movie what advice would that be?

Keep it simple. Go as simple as you can. Know your story. Know what you’re going to do. Short. Straight to the point.

Aeshia Describes The Grand High Witch

Her nails are sharper than a tiger’s claws. She has wrinkly skin like my great grandmother Her hair is balder than a round bowling ball.

She sounds like an angry tiger about to catch its prey. She sounds like a posh rich lady. She sounds like a sleazy woman trying to get what she wants.

She moves like a sneaky snake. She moves slow without a step. She moves gracefully.

She says things like “ I want all these children in England to be removed!” Also things like “ GET THEM I SAY!” Plus “Dogs droppings.” She hates children.

Destiny Describes The Grand High Witch

As the Grand High Witch sneakingly slithered down the long dim dusty hall with her big black talons clinging to her hideous fat fingers as if they were dark black bats hanging from a tall brown brunch sleeping.She had an ugly saggy wrinkly face that had hundreds of moles and warts that had piled over each other like people shoving through a crowd screaming and fighting for their lives.

 Her voice had the sound of a big chested german man she had a squeak in that voice the sound of a mouse.Her voice was a commanding voice if she told you to do something you had better do it.

She had always repeated in here big german like voice “Listen you fat hideous vitches you need to understand the concept of vhat I am saying! You know vhat I am capable of!” and... “Those revolting little rats will all die!”
