Room 14 Beach Movie - Manaiakalani Film Festival

This year students in Room 14 worked together to come up with ideas for our movie. Their were many of great ideas, but the one that stood out the most was creating a musical based on 'Teen Beach Movie'.

The ideas were great, however there was a lot of planning, practicing, filming, recording and editing to do!

Here are some of the skills that the Room 14 film crew had to develop during the process of LEARN, CREATE, SHARE:

  • Use google docs to communicate and plan ideas for the movie
  • Collaborate with other students to plan songs and dance choreography
  • Study and learn the songs and dance movements
  • Teach and guide students the chosen songs and dances

  • Use Garage Band to record and edit voiceovers and songs
  • Use the flip cameras to film scenes
  • Use Hyperstudio to draw background images for greenscreen
  • Use iMovie to edit the final scenes

  • Upload to vimeo
  • Share to Manaiakalani cluster school at the Film Festival
  • Share to the world through our blogs

Well done to Room 14 for such a great job on this year's movie, and an extra special thumbs up to Junior and May who came up with the concept and were the brains behind our movie!


  1. Wow Room 14 - who would have guessed that so much went into the making of your movie. You made it look so easy! I loved seeing you all acting, dancing and singing and you showcase your artistic talents so well too.

    What a bunch of stars!

  9. Hey Room 14
    WOW! This movie is great. It really did make me feel like I was watching the REAL Teen Beach Movie. It would have been really cool to be sucked into a movie, a Teen Beach Movie. I also loved the harmonising with all the songs. Anyway, keep up the great work Room 14.


  10. Hi Room 14 I really enjoyed your movie, it was unfortunate that we didn't get to watch it over the big screen, you all are great actors,

  15. Hello room 14, great movie. I like how you guys made your own version of the Teen Beach Movie. Keep up the great work!! :)

  16. Hi room 14
    Wow i got no word to say all I can say is amazing movie.....

  17. Hey Room 14,
    I don't know what to say..... Only.... WOW!!!! Amazing movie. I think that was a better version of teen beach movie. But what you could of worked on was making it look like you were actually singing. I know it is a bit embarrassing because you're singing in front of each other. But trust there is nothing to be ashamed of. It is all to do with CONFIDENT..... If you don't have confident then you won't be able to build your strength.
    If I was doing a movie like that I would do different shots. And don't do it all green screen. But otherwise that was terrific.

  18. Hey Room 14
    WOW! This movie is great. It really did make me feel like I was watching the REAL Teen Beach Movie. It would have been really cool to be sucked into a movie, a Teen Beach Movie. I also loved the harmonising with all the songs. Anyway, keep up the great work Room 14.
