English Teaching in Japan 79-Next Opening

Thu, 23 Jun 2011 06:58:05 PDT

Next-Opening from Chaz Wright on Vimeo

This is the opening to the movie "Next" that my students and I made for our school festival. We wrote, shot, subtitled, and edited the movie in 5 days. The running time of the movie is 18 minutes. I will be putting the entire movie up later.

This was a big challenge because we only had 5 days to shoot after school, my students aren't actors and are learning English, we had to change our story and rewrite it as we went along because of bad weather, and I was using a HDSLR, Canon 60D, for the first time. Pulling focus was a big learning curve for me.

We all had a great time making our movie and I'm very proud of my students.

Wise Words Wednesday-Create, Cultivate, Be Kind

Tue, 09 Feb 2010 17:15:29 PST

A teacher's purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.
-- Author Unknown
Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers.
-- Author Unknown
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are endless.

Wise Words Wednesday-Lead the Way

Tue, 07 Jul 2009 21:44:34 PDT

If your actions inspire others to dream more,
learn more, do more and become more,
you are a leader.

John Quincy Adams

Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Harold R. McAlindon

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
