Our last meeting for the year was another productive meeting. Admittedly we didn’t have very much to do as we had already recorded the script, but we were able to have the kids read a few of the intros and summaries of the scenes that we could record and include into our final project. Luckily for us, Henrico forwarded us the photos for our scenes early Thursday afternoon, so we were able to get it all put together pretty quickly and it came out really well. The kids did a fabulous job with drawing the scenes and it’s great that we were able to include them in the recording as well. Again, the teacher that we had for our last few meetings was a total game-changer, as she really excelled at organizing the kids and making sure they were speaking loudly enough and saying the right lines. Communication was so difficult virtually so having somebody in the room helping us was a major help. I can’t wait for everyone to see Act 2!

Our final meeting with the students was very enjoyable! We got to look over the script one more time with them and asked them what sections they would like to read. Two of the students were very excited and read almost all of the third party narration for the act. We had already recorded some of the narration but they were at the ends of each scene so it was easy to go in and replace them. We were also able to get all of the pictures sent over and create an introduction with the students where they introduced themselves. It was a little upsetting that it was our last meeting but it was a genuine connection that we had with the students, and one that helped us create a very fun project!
