'Another Hitachi Day' movie competition

This is our entry for the 'Another Hitachi Day' movie competition. It was put together by Joshua and other Year 8 students in our class: Toreka, Selena, Matthew T, Toko, Aidan and Joe (from Room 22).

They had to show how they would bring the outdoors inside. The students chose a beach scene with volleyball, swimming, surfing and sunbathing etc. They used green screen effects to recreate their scene. The top prize is $10,000 and the top 5 schools can win a heat pump for their school.

You can also watch it on Youtube on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yRFZn_SvJw
