I wanted to help students leave school with a smile on their face, so I decided to make an end of school video. When I first saw Disney's Frozen, I remembered thinking the Olaf summer song would be ideal for a school parody.
After tweaking the lyrics slightly to fit the school environment, I assigned different roles to various teachers and asked them to participate. To my delight, they obliged! While my original goal was to make students smile, there were many smiles and laughs that occurred while filming. My favorite scene was when all our faculty played together on the playground...how often do you get to see grownups acting like kids?
When I introduced students to our new school yearbook and its augmented reality component, I told them that as soon as they got home on the last day of school, they could see a surprise video on the first page. After a day or two, I emailed it to parents so they could see it as well. The response was overwhelming and extremely positive.
Positive mission accomplished!
