8th grade students at PS/IS30 Mary White Ovington School studied stage combat in theater class during the school year, but when the pandemic hit and classes went remote, students were not able to perform on stage. So in line with their stage combat theme, students worked on a new project – a superhero short film! These are not your common superheroes and villains though. Students created their own original superheroes and villains around Covid-19, the very pandemic that endangered humankind and took away all their end-of-year senior activities including graduation ceremony. Following a specific shot list, each student acted out the superhero and the villain parts. They learned to shoot and edit their own scenes. Some added sound effects and music. Their scenes are edited together to form a movie trailer for Covid Fighters.
 
To the real heroes worldwide, my students thank you for your putting your life on the line each and every day you fight. Despite the many who prefer not to have their work on the internet, they are still grateful for your work.
Enjoy!
 
 
Thank you!
