That kid is SO CUTE. What a fun school.

This is great! Though I wish they had started right in, gone faster with credits, and cut the part at the end. The only reason being that I almost didn't watch it thinking that six minutes was a little more than I wanted to give. But the video itself is only half that, with the rest being credits and outtakes. That part is fun for the folks involved, but the length could turn people off of watching the video.

That was fun! Thanks, I needed that today. : )

Tanita: Agree!
MR: Yes, it is all about editing. The afterbit did seem spot on for jr. high/middle school though.
Jennifer: It made me laugh too.

Such a cute idea. I would have loved that when I was in middle school!

Deborah said...

What a hoot! I agree on the editing -- although that's part of what makes it feel endearingly like a kid production. And I also appreciated the anti-Kindle line.

Camille said...

Deborah, yes, even though the post video outtakes are sort of long, I think it is endearing. Good word for it. They were very tickled with their efforts.

My middle schooler and I liked the video. I was also a bit put off by the length, but my kiddo enjoyed the outtakes.

He thinks he could totally read the big book at the beginning.
