Monster Movie Mayhem - Skill-Builder

In this Skill-Builder, students become film directors hired to make the next great monster movie!  Our gamers will use the results from their last game of Horrified™: Universal Monsters™ as the script for their project.  Along the way they will track the major events that occur and lay out a rough story outline.  Film directors often use storyboards, or pictures, to map out their movie before they shoot any film.  Students will produce storyboards for their monster movie and learn the building blocks of story telling as they build their film.  Once the storyboards are completed, students will present their film idea for review to see if it’s ready for production!

Students reimagine events from the game and transition them back into the movie world. The art from the game board and components allow students to explore both art and creative writing while building the outline for a new movie dictated by gameplay events.

** Requires the board game Horrified™: Universal Monsters™ to fully implement.
