Flicktionary (3+ Players)

You might be familiar with the game Pictionary, but let's play a game in which we only use movie titles? We call it Flicktionary.

What you need:

  • Sheets of card or paper
  • A marker
  • A bowl or a box
  • A sketch pad or whiteboard/chalkboard

How to play:

  1. Choose a person to write film titles on sheets of paper or card, then fold each one over and put them in a bowl or a box.  The person who has written the film names won't be able to play the round, because they already know the answers!
  2. Nominate a person to be the Sketcher.  If you have 4 people, then there will be one Sketcher on each team and one Guesser.
  3. The Sketcher picks a flick at random from the bowl and looks at it without letting anyone else see.
  4. Set a timer for 60 seconds, and the Sketcher has to draw pictures that represent the film title, while their teammate has to guess.  If there are only 3 of you, then both people have to guess what the Sketcher is drawing.  Remember, that sketches can’t contain words or numbers!
  5. When a person guesses correctly, if there’s time left, the Sketcher can choose another film title from the bowl and start drawing again.
  6. Whoever has guessed the title correctly becomes the Sketcher then. 
  7. A point is given to each person or team that guesses correctly.  Have fun!

Stay at Home Storyboard

Múinteoir John told us about the 'Pre-Production' stage of a film today.  This stage involves all the planning and preparation that happens before you begin to shoot your film.

You decide on a story idea, cast members/characters, the script, storyboarding the scenes and identifying how the film will be visually presented in terms of shoot location, props, voiceover artists, costumes, special effects, and roles for everyone on the team. 

Here’s an example of a story board that you might use to plan your film, but you can have as many scenes as you want.

You can plan and shoot your own short film at home!  Decide on a story (it can be a brand new story, or something you have seen or read before) and then develop it from there.  If you have access to a camera phone, use that to film it!  Send it into us if you'd like.  We’d love to see it!
