Yanked! is a short film created in a four day workshop with high school sophomores at the Holderness School in Plymouth, NH. As part of the Artward Bound Special Program I was asked to come and teach a workshops on Digital Storytelling and Media.
I am really proud of what these kids created in four workshops 90 minutes each and a few afternoon sessions. Everything was shot using iPhones, iPads or a Flip Video camera. The software we used was the iOS apps Toon Camera, Strip Design, Action Movie and Movie FX and everything was edited in iMovie on a Mac.
I'd like give special thanks to Paige, Luke, Emma and Cam who contributed extra work to making the project a reality. They came in during free time and ensured the storyline was coming together, shot extra scenes, and did the all important editing. And thanks to the musician Rik Pfenninger for contributing some original music, you can check out his work here http://www.rikpmusic.com.
