Last cycle, Mr. Larsen and his film artists used their new techniques to produce short films with disappearing characters and objects. The students first created concept outlines in the planning phase, then directed their classmates as they acted in the original screenplays. Teachers, administrators, and a few select cycle classes were among the VIP at the premiere of “Disappearing Act: A Collection of Short Films.” The films range from one to three minutes running time, and they explore themes like friendly rivalry, bullying, and escaping reality.

Mr. Larsen’s seventh grade elective members demonstrated creativity and ingenuity through their fun and lighthearted new films. The festival provided a little bit of visual magic to spark our imaginations and make us wonder.

Please enjoy the films on our YouTube channel, and, when you get the chance, tell those actors and filmmakers how visionary they are.
