COMMENTS FROM THE JUDGES

     "Each year I look forward to seeing how students visualize my story, its characters, and provide an interesting end to the story. This year I was truly amused and delighted. Not only they understood the moral of the story but injected humor into it. I had a good laugh at the 'sunburnt' version of the main character and the 'Guardian of Rest-time' doing what she forbids the main character to do. Bring the character of the old couple managing the shop to life is also delightful to watch. Lastly, I was pleasantly surprised by the two winning teams in selecting a 'pen' and a 'notebook' to end their story respectively and added a twist in the end. The students were indeed very creative and I congratulate the two winning teams.

    However, while I understand the constraints the students have especially during MCO, I wish they could have paid more attention to planning before shooting (eg which direction should a character face when talking), editing (eg interfacing shots and using appropriate virtual background), subtitling (eg spelling & meaning check,  missing subtitles). In other words, creativity is not enough. Good planning and quality check are equally important."

  EDWARD LEE

  "This competition is a good challenge for students. It involves and enhances many skills. Students have to first read and understand the story. Brainstorm and decide a creative ending to the story. And then make it easy for their audience to enjoy the story through their performance and video post-production (such as editing, special effects) skills.

         It's no easy task and all participating teams have delivered well. Congratulations! My only advice to them is to learn from the opponents. Same story, different delivery. Same story, different ending. There is so much we can learn from."

  参加者の皆さん、コンテスト、お疲れさまでした。いろいろアイデアや工夫、素晴らしかったと思います。このような状況の中でも、皆さんは一生懸命にコンテストに参加して、とても感心しています。普段オフラインで表現できることは今、オンラインで表現しなければならないため、うまくできないことがあることは事実ですね。こちらから、いろいろ評価を言うよりはもう一度自分が作成したものを見て、自己評価をして、うまくできたこと、改善すべきことなど、次回に反映できるように自己評価をしたほうが一番いいと私は思います。では、皆さんにおめでとうございます。次回もっといいものをできるように目指してください。

生徒たちは誰かの家で集まって、撮影しましたか。それとも、一人一人で自分たちの家で撮影して、ビデオを合体しましたか。それなら、すごいですね。会えなくても、パンデミックの今でもこのような完成の高い作品ができるのですね。素晴らしいと思います。自分の学生たちにも見せたいです。みなさん、おめでとうございます。
