I AM MAKING MOVIES 2

‘’Where did you go on Sunday and what did you do’’?

Well on Sunday I went to the Auckland museum for an awards ceremony. A very special awards ceremony- I Am Making Movies 2! My class had entered our movie and we were so excited about the possibility of winning a major prize.

I quickly sat down between Kashya and Mary . I stared at the the projector watching parts of video clips. Then I saw the Pt England Kapa Haka group. They sang lots of wonderful songs and awesome actions too. My favorite part of the museum was when we won our prize for best production, because there were people taking photos of us, so it made me feel happy.
There were 2 singing groups performing too. My favourite one was Pride of Auckland. They sang smoothly and added some funny beats.
Moving on we had the next category for best supreme winner I crossed my fingers together, hoping that we would win and finally I heard that Our History, Our Heritage had won. I was really happy and proud of our Yr 8 girls!

History of the camera

In 1826 a man captured his first snapshot in France, using a metal plate coated with silver. 12 years later Jacques Daguerre, made a camera and it was made out of copper plate. The metal was covered in Bitumen which is like the concrete on the road.
One of the first camera’s had what looked like a telescope on the front of it. There are many different types of camera and one type from America is called Kodac, which was invented by George Eastmen .
Chemicals are used to develop the pictures. Camera’s have changed alot over the years, starting with them being large and now they are small.
