Incase you didn’t check out Robert Paul Weston’s blog that I linked in the previous post, I thought I’d put this front and center for you.
It turns out that any book, no matter how worthy and somber, becomes pleasingly ludicrous when compressed into 90 seconds. Please watch our very first entry, in the video above: a 90-second version of A Wrinkle in Time (1963).
We’re planning a star-studded 90-Second Newbery Film Festival at the New York Public Library in Fall of 2011. (Who knows, maybe it will be as raucous as the fan art gallery showwe threw for The Order of Odd-Fish).
Teachers, here’s a fun project that will get your students reading Newbery winners. Students, here’s an excuse to mess around with video equipment. Librarians, here’s an activity to do with your teen advisory boards. Anyone can enter. Everyone wins!
