I AM Making Movies - Auckland Museum

go to site

Kaizen rules at Auckland Museum
Auckland Museum continues to make measured and iterative steps towards a world class digital footprint which emulates the Smithsonian belief that a Museum web site should go for the same depth of relationship online as they try for in the physical building.

I AM Making Movies
Just launched - I AM Making Movies  - a competition which invites Year 5 - 13 students to create a short movie based on exhibits throughout the Museum.  The project is as part of the Museums eLearning strategy to support the new Digital Technologies curriculum. 

Movies may be conceived as either documentaries or creative story-telling – like those featuring performance artist Mika in their current exhibition, Wonderland: The Magic of the Rose.

Competition finalists will be showcased online and all contestants will be invited to an awards evening on Sunday, 20 June.  Entries will be judged and prizes presented on the night by stars of the New Zealand film industry.
