Today our Fugleflick Filmmakers had the honor of seeing their student-created, art-related video, Elementary Musical, screen to an international audience at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival. Our students (currently 6th graders) were invited on stage afterwards to talk about their movie making experience.
Dryden's Art Program has been making award-winning Fugleflicks with volunteer filmmakers for six years now. This movie is now our 5th Fugleflick that has screened at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival. Have a Fugleflick film fest below.
In 2007 Young Sloppy Brush was screened at CICFF. This brush then was asked to screen in Italy and Australia the following year. In 2009 it traveled around the country to art rooms in the Brush with Fame tour. He went missing before the end of his trip. Visit his website to see pictures, his video and his MIA video to learn more. We miss him:(
In 2009 Let's Be Green when we Clean screen at the CICFF. This video teaches students to conserve, recycle, and be smarter about cleaning the art room. It was a national finalist in the National Geographic Find Your Footprint Student Video Contest. See the framed T-Shirt in the hallway outside the art room. This video is full of special FX.
In 2009 Complementary in Every Way screened at the CICFF. This love story between Red and Green very cleverly teaches the primary, secondary colors, color mixing, and introduces many related concepts. This story grew from a silly conversation in a 4th grade class. They sketched out the story while a group of 5th graders played the roles.
In 2010 Glue Blues screened at the CICFF. This musical video told the plight of misused & mistreated bottles of glue from their own perspective. The 5 filmmakers had very creative storytelling strategies as they sang, danced, and spoke of how to help cure the Glue Blues. This movie was featured in a Wonderopolis post about how glue works.
In 2012 Elementary Musical screened at the CICFF. This musical introduction to the Elements of Art has won a number of accolades since it was created in early 2012. It won the Arlington Heights School District's Youtube Festival, Best of Show for the Screen Test Team Fest, and tied for first place NextVista.org's student video contest.
