Daydreamer
Mary, a 13-year-old student, is an incredibly famous astronaut but she’s not in space; her thoughts are. Tired, Mary sleeps on the school bus on her way to school and her mind takes her to a dark place where her worst school-related nightmares come to life.

Theme

Although a horror film, Daydreamer contains a message of resilience and determination. As an audience, we follow the main character’s struggle for complaisance. She is so eager to exceed in her studies that she dreams of her utter most fears: forgetting to work on her homework and getting teased by her colleagues – and even a book – about it. As a result, the students tried to explore the theme by digging into the “be your own movement for personal change” idea for the protagonist. The figure of Elizabeth – the new student – although ambiguous was crafted to support that analogy. Elizabeth is more than just a real student, it's Mary’s conscience saying that she can be the best version of herself if she just believes in it.

Reference

The students from 7A1’s class were very inspired by the “October Halloween vibe” during their pre-production phase. Due to Covid, I began my visits at George Street Middle School in the beginning of October so the kids were very influenced by the festive season. While talking about methods of storytelling and film genres, as a filmmaker myself, I introduced them a few examples of my own work. I showed them stop-motion animations, horror/suspense shorts and even a comedic piece. With the excitement of the season and the inspiration from a particular suspense film of mine titled “Beneath her feet,” the kids acquired the inspiration needed to create “Daydreamer.”

Theme

Similar to 7A1’s take on the theme, 7A2’s class explored the theme “Be the movement” a bit differently. The horror film, which is the journey of four classmates in a creepy and haunted school, focuses on the main character’s determination to prove her own truth. Reggie, the class clown, is accused by her classmates several times throughout the film of being behind the disappearances of her own friends. By taking a leadership approach at the end of the film – although it’s just a dream – Reggie proves that she needs to create her own movement in order to achieve her end goal: save her friends. Although the “evil” is not exactly revealed to the audience, the filmmakers decided to play with the idea of also making Reggie her own villain (along with the haunted school) since after all, she is the one dreaming it all.  


Reference

Resembling 7A1, I also began mentoring 7A2 in October – therefore, the “October Halloween vibe” was also present in this class. Similarly, I also showed examples of my own work that really inspired the outcome of their project. However what makes 7A2’s film very local is the story behind their film’s story. George Street Middle was once a military hospital for the Canadian Army back in the old days. Due to its history, the building in reality has indeed this aspect of being haunted – after all, probably a million soldiers died on that structure. Furthermore, the school is also located right next to a graveyard, which according to the teacher, was a very effective construction to have right next to a hospital since many soldiers did not make out of the building alive. Inspired by these local events, 7A2 managed to create an incredible film inspired by real local events.

Theme

Our cinematic production represents this year's theme of “be the movement” because the story is about loving yourself. Throughout the film our leading character Georgia Rose is struggling with her mental health, and she projects her negative emotions into the character known as Ghost. By the end of the film Georgia Rose overcomes her inner turmoil and learns to love herself. This action is demonstrated when she removes Ghost from her life and the world becomes bright and healthy again. 


Reference

Our film was inspired by the well-known director Tim Burton. We used his makeup techniques and dark themes to create atmosphere and art in our film. We took inspiration from his movie Edward Scissorhands as we were influenced by the whimsical world that Tim Burton created, a world that held so much beauty yet was mired in darkness. The other film that greatly influenced us was The Ghost Story, directed by David Lowery. We found the ghost character to be an intriguing way of expressing emotions. The inkling of sorrow and cruelness that the ghost holds is such a powerful communication tool. We really wanted a character that was both childlike yet held this darkness inside and the ghost really brought this vision to life. Without this character our film would have gone in a completely different direction.

Theme

This year, we drew inspiration from the Youth Fusion’s theme, “Be the movement” in many ways. First of all, our story revolves around basketball and we found that sports was the easiest way to incorporate the theme into our film. Secondly, there are a lot of social movements going on around the world right now, so we wanted to show it in our film with the themes of bullying, rejection by others and sexism. We thought it was important to convey a message of inclusion with our film because that and sports are the values we chose to put forward with the production company we created earlier this year.


Reference

It was easy for us to choose the Quebec film from which we wanted to draw inspiration for our movie. The film Jeune Juliette (Young Juliette) by Anne Émond was partly filmed at our school and we thought that it was so cool that we chose it. In addition, the topic of rejection was important in the film Jeune Juliette and it was a subject that we really wanted to address in our film. To pay tribute to the film, we recreated three shots exactly where they were filmed in the original movie. Can you find them?

Theme

(adapted from the French original poem)

Inside the spaceship, the Rin-Go

An agent is ready to go

The agent moves at a good pace

Everything takes place in space

A storm is released by his operation

Which will lead the team into a silly situation

Initially, only the role of assistant

Tired of the actions of this incompetent

She started, “the movement”

And out of the ship he exited: “Out!” she shouted.


Reference

Our inspiration comes from several Quebec works. First, we were inspired by the videoclip Drumz of the artist Les Louanges produced by Pablo Escobar Tudori. In the clip, we see the artists performing and the camera crew filming them. At some point, a catastrophe suddenly stops the filming. It is the same thing for our film. Second, we were inspired by the short film Supernova directed by Jérémie Brochu-Dufour. In this film, a young man is fascinated by space. At the end of the film, we see him and his family piloting a spaceship. In this scene, the way we simulated the ship and its crew through the sets and costumes guided us in our artistic direction. The idea of the film was to parody movies like Star Trek which is what we wanted.

Theme

Let’s Attack the Virus is a tribute by students to their favourite pop culture works, but also a true cathartic story for the class. When we were discussing the theme with the students, they were much more interested in the word “movement” than anything else, especially the impossibility of movement in a time of a pandemic.

It was impossible for them to see beyond what had happened to them in 2020, which is still going on. So, they chose, unconsciously, to fight against the virus for our short film.

Theme

There is the physical action, the one we usually see such as the bike, the hands coming out from under the bed, pouring the potion, the injection, the agitation of Picaro imprisoned and the movement of the camera. In terms of sound, there are all the transitions of sounds and music. Then, there is the invisible action inside us that brings us to change, to movement. Our characters welcome changes, transformation and show us that it is never too late to change. Since forgiveness allows for movement, it ensures that we do not always stay stuck in the same place forever. We can, thus, overcome our prejudices.


Reference

We were inspired by the scene from the movie Goddess of the Fireflies by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette in which the characters are on bikes and are crossing a bridge with their arms open towards the sky and freedom. We felt that this scene well expressed the values we wanted to put forward: forgiveness, change, openness and trust.

Theme

The theme Be the movement was not so much conscious in the development of the project by the class. However, it is implicit in it. Given the particular situation that we live, workshops were only held virtually. This situation has also limited the students to shoot their film only inside the school. They were confined in their creation. But this limitation was also—I think—unconsciously in the first scene in which the group is “trapped” in a classroom, in detention.

Theme

The concept of “being in motion” can take different paths when it comes to making a film. This little spark gave rise to great ideas. We also have wanted to push our plot a little bit further by exploring a totally different universe and thus highlight that it is possible to “be in motion” when we confront reality and dream, when we go from the present to another universe of “cape and sword.” There is a lot of emphasis on the action that takes place in the film, moving the actors from one place to another. This film will allow you to see action, suspense, and everything else you could expect from a film. A thrilling plot that puts movement at the forefront, as it is an integral part of our story. Being in motion, it is not only to move around by walking running, it is much more than that.

Theme

In The Kidnapped, there are three male dancers who are dancing in the auditorium. Dancing is our movement that allows us to do action. To make everyone happy, they practise one choreography so their movement is synchronized. In addition, there are many running scenes that show us a chase. To emphasize this movement, we have created accelerated scenes. In the film, someone is kidnapped and in the school, this mysterious figure is trying to sneak in without drawing attention. Our “super” detectives use a moving car. Then, we incorporated motion into the creation of special effects, including the illusion of a police car. While searching for clues, one of the detectives gets sprayed by the fountain. The water, which was supposed to have a downward motion, deviated from its normal path to impair the detectives. 


Reference

Our film The Kidnapped was influenced by the Quebec film Bon Cop, Bad Cop of 2006. In this film, two officers with very different characters must cooperate to solve a crime. In our film, we brought back our two officers. However, they are rather confused.  They still manage to solve a crime, but we will never know if it’s by luck or by the intensive search for clues.

Theme

First of all, the run and animal noises are an obvious demonstration of movement. Secondly, the students’ revolt is a movement of protest against the teachers of the school that went crazy. Third, the scene where the young rebels make chaos in the classroom and everyone runs away to create a plan represents a movement of rage and rebellion. The teacher, by imitation, moves and gesticulates like an agitated chicken in trance. During the hypnosis scene, the keys create a repetitive movement from left to right in order to bewitch the protagonist. The introduction and conclusion texts scroll on the screen to integrate the movement. The entire film is representative of several different movements. Well, almost everything. 


Reference

The Long Winter is a Quebec film released in 1999. Directed by Michel Brault, this historical drama with some fiction is a story of the Lower Canada Rebellion of 1837–1838 which attempted to make the Lower Canada, now Quebec, an independent republic. As in the School Goes Crazy, this film shows the rebellion of a group oppressed by an authority that violates their rights and freedom.

Theme

For the film, we were not demoralized by the pandemic and the various health measures it entails. The idea of movement inspired us to write a film with several characters. It was a real challenge considering that everyone had to film themselves from home (and alone!). Then, even though it was a challenge, it was important for us not to film only inside the school, because it was the most accessible place and we wanted to explore new horizons. So the theme inspired us to create outdoor scenes and an action-movie style. In the film, the action takes place in Tina’s dream, while her reality, a Zoom class, is completely frozen. So the idea was also to get out of the confinement with art and imagination, as our protagonist does.

This year, we mainly watched the film Antigone by Sophie Deraspe. In it, we observed the theme of family a lot, a theme that often comes up in Quebec film industry and in art. For our film, with the concept of the mafia, we tried to recreate a small family spirit in Tina’s dream, because the family is rich in action and dialogue for the characters. We also tried to put our ingenuity in the script and montage, because we know that, in Quebec, it is difficult to get a lot of funding. It is in this spirit that we have managed to make the Zoom scenes quite realistic!

Theme

For the theme, we first made a list of definitions and synonyms of the word “movement.” From the start, we knew that we wanted to film some sort of capsule on healthy living and integrate a lot of exercises and movement. Then we decided to take it a step further by also seeing the movement as groups that have a collective point of view towards the same goal. At first, it was supposed to be a confrontation between “normal” people and conspiracy theorists, but we decided to tone down that aspect as not to add fuel to the fire. There are still signs of this in the final version where the characters have very opposite opinions on health. Lastly, we also wanted to send a little hope to those who are overweight by including a message from a colleague (and friend) who has achieved quite a feat of fitness.  


Reference

We chose the movie “Les Boys” by Louis Saia as our reference to a Quebec film. There were several elements in common with what we wanted to create: humour, sports, friendship, rivalry… We targeted a scene from the movie and referred to it in three lines.

Theme

Ray’s Day Talks about the dangers of bullying and not being kind towards classmates. The movement that inspired us was anti bullying. This movie talks about the dangers of bullying and the effects it can have on someone's mental health. We believe mental health is very important, and so is the anti-bullying movement. Ray’s Day is our take on a cautionary tale, where the mistreatment of Ray leads him down a difficult path with difficult decisions.

Theme

From the start, the character of the film appears detached from reality. He is visibly depressed, and the best way to represent this state was to make the character static for a large part of the film. He does not talk much, he does not move much. An initial longer version of the film showed more this absence (or refusal) of movement, specifically during the first scene where the protagonist just watches subways pass before his eyes. Then, the moment in the film when his body finally seems to come alive is when he decides to face the death of his mother. Death then appears as the ultimate absence of movement.

Theme

It is with great pride that the students of the CC3 class present the short film The Plan. The idea of committing a crime to serve a higher cause was particularly appealing to the students. The story is very much inspired by the current events, especially the current pandemic. The theme “Be the movement” is rooted in the actions of the characters, who steal from the richest to repair an injustice, in a movement of solidarity.


Reference

The CC3 group draws its inspiration from several productions such as Money Heist, Lupin and Bon Cop, Bad Cop. We can see these inspirations through the story of the film, which immerses us in a near dystopian future, where access to medications is a privilege reserved for the elite. A research centre financed by a pharmaceutical giant, Laboratory X, manages to manufacture a miraculous serum, capable of rapidly curing all known diseases. The arrival of this product on the market has caught the attention of the world’s leading media, especially because the doses are priced astronomically. A group of mercenaries, recruited for their expertise in burglary, is entrusted with an important mission: to recover a sample of the precious serum. This group of specialists use the help of a young student, who will infiltrate the laboratory during a school trip.

Theme

The Purple Briefcase follows a young Dr. Marco. In need of a new briefcase, he is intrigued by a purple one he finds at the local mall. He is happy with his purchase until he opens is and is transported to an animated Wild West dimension. Somehow, he must find his way out of there. This relates to this year's Be the Movement theme as we link movement to Dr. Marco’s position in time as he travels through time. The Youth Fusion theme is also represented through Dr. Marco’s physical movement through the live-action world as well as the animated world.


Reference

The film was mainly inspired by the television adaptation of Gerald Way’s comic-book series The Umbrella Academy, which aired on Netflix in 2019. It follows a group of mutants fighting an oncoming apocalypse with the help of a time-travelling briefcase. Snowtime! is another inspiration behind The Purple Briefcase. The 2015 computer-animated feature film follows a group of kids starting a giant snowball fight over their holiday break. Made in Canada, the film inspired the filmmakers to animate the Wild West dimension.
