Last week we missed Fan Art Friday, but this week we are back in full force. We have 2 videos to present this week so let’s get this party started!
First up we have Desiree. Here’s what she had to say about her submission:
My name is Desiree, and I teach a career preparation course for grades 9-12. For the annual Shakespeare Festival, my grade 11 students decided to take Shakespeare characters and act out what would happen if they were tributes in the Hunger Games. This video features Romeo and Juliet as Peeta and Katniss, Shylock as Haymitch, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth as Cato and Clove, and Cleopatra as Rue. I thought someone might find it interesting, because I do! I have the best students ever!
Here is Craig with his vocal arrangement of Rue’s Farewell. Here’s some info behind the video:
As a Vocal Music Education major, I’m working out a choral arrangement using Rue’s Farewell this summer. I created lyrics to fit the original recording, loosely based on the lullaby “Deep in the Meadow” by Suzanne Collins. I was trying to capture Katniss’ inner dialogue and overlay it with the visuals from the movie. To that end, I have created a working study of the my concept. I have timed the Lyrics to appear in sync with the original track (although it has been extended and a final Ending added). The finished work will be for High School mixed choir with solos, and Band. I hope to record an ensemble from my school late summer or early Fall. My goal is to make a new connection to kids that love the books (and movie) and love to sing!
You guys did great!! Thanks for sending it in. We hope to see a lot more Fan Art so make sure to send them into email@example.com.
