Watch this short film:
Stop the film at 30 seconds. Write a description of the setting that you see. If you can’t access the film, here is a screenshot:
Use powerful adverbs and adjectives to describe. Can you use hyphens to describe the buildings? Example: Jenga-like towers? Use short sentences to show tension (you could even use one-word sentences or paragraphs, like we’ve done in class). Can you use the weather to show the mood?
Remember, you can use www.thesaurus.com to help you up-level your vocabulary!
Pause the film again at 5.20. Can you write another description of the action you just watched? Here’s my example:
The lone biker swerved, skidded and came to a halt. Anxiously, he turned to look behind him. On the ground were the two contraptions that had been sent to attack him. His plan had worked. The cylindrical robots lay motionless on the ground a few metres away; their red and orange lights had now dimmed to black. Who made these monstrosities? Why were they attacking him? He took a deep breath. Relieved and satisfied, he had defeated the drones, for now.
His mind couldn’t forget what he saw. That micro chip… what did it mean? Could it be his ticket out of here? He needed to return to explore but how could he risk running that kind of gauntlet again? Isolation. Frustration. Anger. His emotions surrounded him… but he knew he had to fight on. He turned the key in the ignition of his bike… IT was waiting for him. IT had found him.
