The students in this video worked collaboratively to create the concept for this video. They also created the first drafts of all the choreography, researched special effects techniques, designed and created the costumes, scouted out locations for shooting, provided ongoing input to the storyboard, and kept us all laughing! They were assisted by a few adults…
