Starter

 

Watch the following video and see how many different Gods you can recognise https://vimeo.com/70975460

 

Main Activity

 

Watch the same video again and think of the following questions.

  • Use a thesaurus to think of different ways of describing the movement shown in the video (e.g. run, chase, sprint).
  • Pause the video at various points and make a list of words that can be used to describe the action taking place.
  • Try describing the video to someone who has never seen it before. What words / phrases can you use to convey the tension in the animation?
  • Pause the video when the camera focusses on the faces of the various characters. What might they be thinking / feeling at these points?
  • Describe the backstory for the running character (called Olympia). Where does she come from? How did she come to be involved in the events in the animation?

 

Extension

 

Can you write a new story that involves the Gods of Olympus?
