Day 5 (last day)

Today's activity for the boys was to make a movie.  They were given a few props which they had to incorporate into a story which they had to create.  I only had to remind them that a good story line had a beginning, a middle and an end and that there was a problem that needed to be solved.   And they were off.

They got right into it, and came up with lots of great ideas.  After they had sketched out the scenario and prepared some lines, they did a few practice runs.  Then they put on some costumes and gave me a run-through.  I helped them smooth out some dialogue, but I was really impressed with their creativity.

After lunch, we got ready to shoot the scenes.  The boys had a hard time not laughing, and there were a few several takes, but we finally got some good ones.  We didn't manage to film all the scenes, but the boys are off to a good start.  One of these days, Monkey Man and M-boy will have to come back to film the final scenes.

Monkey Man took home the raw scenes and did a fantastic job editing and adding effects.  Here are the results:

Great job boys!

I really enjoyed watching the boys work together (and play together); they get along very well and enjoy making each other laugh.  It was a really wonderful week.  And so ends another successful Bombing Boys Camp.
