Manaiaklani Film Festival

    Manaiakalani Film Festival Review: 5 Years



Remember when you were 5 years old? That feeling you got when you first started school. The Pt England Extension students created a movie that shows flashbacks from the past. The movie explains what it was like to be 5 years old again. Of course we all were five years old once. The message that goes with the movie shows pupils the stages of growing up. The movie would be perfect for anyone to watch at any age due to the movie being educational and inspirational at the same time.

 
The movie camera angles were up to good standards, with the lighting being a bit off with the weather being a bit cloudy, but the movie was still good at explaining the elements of being a five year old and growing up as a young teenager and processing as an adult.
