Luke's Way of Looking by Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley

Made in iMovie
This high quality multimodal text / video introduces the ideas behind Nadia Wheatley and Matt Ottley's delightful Luke's Way of Looking. It is designed for Years 1 and 2 but equally suited for ages 5 to 10 and up. I suggest setting this video to watch as flipped classroom homework, or use in class as a way into the book. Potential enquiry questions include:
  • Does everyone look the same?
  • Do we all see things the same way?
  • What do people think of you?
  • How do you feel about that?

Luke's Way Of Looking

It doesn't seen to be available at time of writing in Amazon. Please let me know in the comments where I can pick up a copy of this please. I can only borrow it for so long from the library!

I produced this multimodal text within iMovie. I do have the funds to get Final Cut but I have yet to see iMovie struggle with all I throw at it. At points in the movie there are 3 audio tracks, narration, sound effects and green screen all running together. It probably helps having a relatively recent iMac to render it in, but there are no jumps or glitches on playback. It is a little fiddly balancing all the audio with small control sliders, but not prohibitively so.
