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

An introductory video to 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

Finally it seem to have been reprinted, and quite rightly so !
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.
