Last year on Earth Day for the Film on the Fly digital storytelling contest, my kids and I created the three minute and fifty second video, “Go Green, Go Electric!” My son (who was 11 at the time) did some the editing for this video using iMovie, and I did the rest. In following the rules for “Film on the Fly,” we shot all the video for this movie using a cell phone. Since we wanted different people in different scenes (and my son couldn’t legally drive the car) we alternated being the videographer and being actors in the movie.
We actually won first place in the contest. This was a lot of fun to create together, and certainly got us thinking more about the viability of electric car technology.
Thanks to Miles Electric Vehicles of Tulsa, Oklahoma for helping us with this video!
