A Teen's Inventive Take on ISHMAEL!
This wonderful 10-minute introduction to ISHMAEL whizzes by fantastically! It's the work of Juliann Bi, a junior at Ladue Horton Watkins HS in St. Louis, created after reading ISHMAEL for an AP Environmental Sciences class. The assignment was: read the book, then produce a project to demonstrate your understanding of the differences between Leavers and Takers. In a note to us, Juliann said, "The film, to be honest, was a spur-of-the moment decision for me. I would've just done an old school poster presentation, but I decided to try the iMovie that's been wasting away on my laptop for about a year now." We're delighted she didn't settle for just a poster!
A comment by one early viewer: "It's delightful, charming, and engaging. A beautifully light touch, and it gets the message across. But how do they draw so fast?" See for yourself at Intro to ISHMAEL.
