Movie Making in my Family

I did my project about how my great grandmother makes movies and about how I make movies now but in a different way. About how it's changed and how it is important in my families heritage.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I learned about this project is what growing up was like for my mom. How a lot of things have changed not just the cameras and the quality. And how much this means to my family.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned how technology has changed. How these movies affected my family. What my moms family was like and how important this topic is.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

The ways of providing have changed, cod fishery in New Brunswick was a lot more popular and they had different way of entertaining themselves. Things are more advanced. Campobello island looks a lot different.
