Tarawera Experience

term the extension group have been working really hard on a movie about Tarawera each person was in a group to work on something for a couple of weeks to tell our school about the Tarawera eruption that unfortunately destroyed our famous pink and white terraces. At bottom of this wonderful movie it is my reflection about the movie Tarawera.

First I am going to tell you what this movie is about This movie was my Contribution I had made in the Tarawera story.
It is about a family that lived in Te Wairoa. This family is called the Hazzard family. The parent are teachers, they teach in their school house which practically means that they live in a school. This family was also in the Tarawera eruption but only one survived.
Do you want to find out? Then watch the movie

My reflection for this term on Tarawera:

I think that I did alright on the Tarawera movie but I don't think it was good enough to hit bang on the Good mark. I think that I need to improve on my scripting skills and also telling my actors to act like they really mean it.

I think the only challenge that I had to face up to was the frustration and getting my actors together because they were too busy filming with the other people. If you think I could have done better on my movie please leave me a comment to tell me some advice
Thank you


  1. Hi Angela,

    Your movie really hooked me in. I watched it and i saw the backround. It was really impressive. You are really good at putting backrounds into movies. I think you a smart.

    I saw the narrative that you wrote but it already had a comment on it, so feel free to come onto my blog and read my narrative.

  2. Talofa Angela,

    I LOVED your tarawera project that you had made. It tells me straight away what you have been working, filming and studying on. Well Done!I also liked your description that you had made with your movie. It also tells me straight away what you had been studying on. Great work and also great movies.

    Yours Sincerely, Ala

  3. Malo Angela. I understand your frustration at not being able to have your group when you needed them. Next time around we'll have to think more about this part of film making.
