Adding narration to a film

  1. 1. Adding narration to a film A Collaborative English Language Project in Grade 6 Enric Calvet, 2013
  2. 2. Select a video clip You can find some very good films, cartoons or video clips in You Tube and Vimeo. Here you are some links: Ringling College of Art + Design https://vimeo.com/user4485046 You Tube Disney Pixar Channel http://www.youtube.com/user/DisneyPixar/ Google Videos http://www.google.es/videohp https://vimeo.com/36998017
  3. 3. Prepare a script It is important to follow a script to prepare the dubbing or to add narrative to the video. Here you are an example: First, elicit vocabulary from students in order to fill with words the narrative. Then, search in dictionaries (paper or online) the vocabulary they don’t know or the one they want to know. Then, prepare some “extra vocabulary” (connectors, prepositions, adverbs, comparatives...) they may want to use. Finally, start writing the narrative.
  4. 4. Watch the video (two or three times) and leave time to prepare the narrative in groups.
  5. 5. Write narrative This is an example of a script and the narrative prepared by a group of three students. They must work with the narrative by negotiating, collaborating and reaching a final agreement with the full text.
  6. 6. Students must agree with the narrative and do some oral rehearsal before voice recording.
  7. 7. Text rehearsal The full group agrees with the final text and each student select the sentence (or sentences) to record the final narrative of the film. One or two trials before the final recording is a good way to “release pressure”!
