The Great Flat Stanley Adventure
Earlier this year I received a missive from a good friend and adventurer that she needed assistance in a Flat Stanley project. Flat Stanley is a character from a book and as part of a reading lesson plan in schools, Flat Stanley is often mailed around the world to visit places. Pictures are taken with Flat Stanley and then he is mailed back so a classroom can map out his travels.
Well I decided that pictures wouldn't do, instead I filmed and sent them a video of my travels with Flat Stanley.
Flat Stanley and I visited:
It was a lot of fun and I think they will enjoy the movie quite a bit. My good friend Katie Mauro assisted me with filming and was invaluable in the filming and planning process.
- Behind The Scenes -
The scene with the snow was filmed hours after I had a tooth pulled. I didn't want to do any filming on that day, but this was the last snow of the year. The classroom I sent this video to is on Arizona, so a snow scene like that was fun to include.
The Reading Pagoda was actually the most difficult scene to film. The area was very crowded that night with teenagers watching the sunset. Fortunately I was able to find a spot in front of the Pagoda where I could get the shot in.
