The Joy of Books (stop-motion video)

January 15, 2012 4 comments

Hi Everyone,

I found this on Yahoo (http://comedy.video.yahoo.com/?lid=24038736&vid=27876460). Sean Ohlenkamp and his wife, Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp made a stop motion video called ‘The Joy of Books’. It was a viral hit on the internet. They used Type Books (a bookstore) and for 4 nights, they would rearrange the books and make them into a stop motion video. I got the facts from http://www.quillandquire.com/blog/index.php/2012/01/10/meet-sean-ohlenkamp-creator-of-the-viral-video-the-joy-of-books/.

The first part reminds me a bit of Harry Potter.

He did a smaller version with his own bookshelf:

I also liked his other videos like Cat Vs. Pinata and his ads for the Toronto Zoo.

Silhouette Dancing

November 30, 2011 5 comments

Hi Everyone,

Today, Ms.Jane showed us a silhouette dance by a few Year 6s last year. I was quite interested in this and did a little research on this but I didn’t find out much and I also didn’t find the name for the type of dance (if anyone finds out, can they please comment and tell me?).

I did find out about 1 professional group called Pilobolus who is famous for this. They have won some awards and have performed for shows.

Here are a few of their performances:

If you were in 4BM, you might remember Mr.Bob showing us this. It’s also my favourite one that Pilobolus did.

Here’s a trailer to show called ‘Shadow Land’ but they got Pilobolus to do the shadows.

Bidauto hired Pilobolus to do a commercial for them.

I hope you like the videos! Please comment and tell me what you think!

Hi 6SS,
I made 2 videos of 2 relaxing i like. People who are in Mr.Chad’s Class last year might know these 2 songs. On of them is Deep Forest – Sweet Lullaby and the other on is Of Oceans-In Love not limbo.


The song Sweet Lullaby is about the beauty and the living of African people. You should watch the music video.
If you watch it carefully it is like the Ubunto village.
I just wanted to share this with you guys.

Marbles

October 16, 2011 1 comment

Hi Everyone,

I was reading the news when I found an article about the most expensive marble. I realized Marbles are science (how they’re made and etc.) so I would like to share some information about marbles with everyone. Another thing I also realized is that we don’t play with things such as marbles (Well, most of us don’t). We’re too obssesed with playing things such as PSPs and Wii but kids our age a hundred years ago, played with marbles like how we play with computer games.

Here are a few links on some articles about marbles:

Here’s an article about marbles and their collectors price:

Here’s some Youtube Videos explaining about Marbles:

This video is about how marbles are made.

This is a Howcast video on how to play marbles. Actually, it’s one of the many ways you can play marbles.
