Lisa West, Middle School Drama Teacher
Over the last two weeks, the Grade 8 drama and Grade 12 media arts classes were highly engaged with one another in a rich, authentic interdisciplinary project, creating and executing zombie films.
In preparation for their filming, the Grade 8 students welcomed a number of guest artists into their classroom to learn about stage combat choreography and how to apply special effects makeup. In late October, Paola Ortiz joined the classes to teach students how to use makeup to create bruises, scabs and open wounds. Stage combat artists, Michael Dufays and Tammy Everett from The Academy of Fight Directors of Canada taught students the safety procedures of creating an illusion of fight in stage combat by exploring how to safely mimick hitting, hair pulling, face-smashing and slapping.
