Express Yourself - Manaiakalani Film Festival 2013


NWA from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

A group of students in our class wanted to create a rap to express their feelings about school and life in general. The background track is an instrumental called 'Express Yourself' by 'NWA'. Everyone else had fun participating as dancers, actors, videographers, movie editors etc. The second short movie is a mash up of different songs matched to things we might say in real life. Please feel free to leave us a positive comment if you enjoyed our movie.

  13. Hi room 21
    This was amazing . It was hard finding the correct lyrics to put in the rap. expressing yourself though rap is like telling your story. To be honest that was one of my favourite movies I have been in. Let's keep the good work up room 21

    By the way I'm the tall one in the movie

  22. Hi Room 21, Congratulations on another very successful film festival entry. I really enjoyed the way you expressed yourselves through the lyrics you wrote, the graphics, the camera shots, the movements etc. It was a fabulous example of Kia pai tekotahi.

    Well done to all of you.

    PS. Rapping is one word that you should NEVER write unless you know how to spell it! An important message for all the commentators.

  25. Hi Mrs Lagitupu and Room 21,
    I really enjoyed you movie. You guys are really talented when it comes to making movies. You were very smart and creative to come up with the rap and the different songs to put in. My favourite part of the movie was the second part. I thought that you used suitable songs which made it GREAT and sometimes funny!

    Did you have a particular person or group in your class who came up with the idea of putting songs into real life?

    These Manaiakalani Film Festivals are getting better and better each year thanks to classes like you!
