1 Minute Video Challenge at St Leo’s

Last Friday 4th September, about 30 students representing Year 8 to Year 12 at St Leo’s Catholic College took part in an Adobe 1-Minute Video Challenge.

This challenge is all about working with a team of students and teachers to create a 1 minute video in a day with the use of Adobe software (such as Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush, After Effects, Character Animator, Aero & Photoshop) to help promote the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2015, the United Nations established 17 interconnected Sustainable Development Goals that need to be achieved by 2030 achieve a better future for our globe. Each goal addresses the following global challenges:

  • Poverty
  • Inequality
  • Climate change
  • Environmental degradation
  • Peace and
  • Justice

The St Leo’s students formed 5 groups and after I went over the criteria and some basic film making techniques, they created five x 1 minute films to help raise awareness of these goals.

Here is a video made by St Leo’s teacher Louie Tiglao about the students in action …

The last hour of the day involved exporting, sharing and judging the films. The judging involved a mix of peer judging and me judging. Here are the winning films …
