    The black and blue winter sky groaned with rain clouds that were about to fall heavily upon the crowded street. Hilary carried the loaded gun, and she seemed to be the only one looking into the thundery heavens.

  • Thank you very much for your ideas!! Will think about that.

  • Jeg startet kurset for seks dager siden. Jeg drakk en kopp kaffe for tre timer siden.

  • I really enjoyed creating my three characters: the unhappy woman who is working in a supermarket, the heavy-metal guy in public transport and his pinkish little daughter and would like them to form a family (grandmother-son-granddaughter), but what it´s not quite clear what to do with them. I need a real good "what if?-question" to get my story going.

  • She felt as if the fresh waves that danced around her sailboat were giggling in the sunlight.

  • Straight out of Wacken - he liked it when people thought of Germany's famous heavy metal open air when they saw him. Dressed in black from head to toe, leather pants, heavy footwear, sweatshirt with some metal band printed with those misanthropic-looking, dragon-like figures. Skull rings on his fingers. Hair shaggy, long, in a color that is not one. Plus a...

  • Takkk for kurset. Jeg liker Harald and Theodor veldig godt.

    Yunha har kjøpt pastasaus i butikken. De fire vennene snakker med filmteamet i pausen.

  • Straight out of Wacken*, that's how the guy looked to me. Dressed in black from head to toe, leather pants, heavy shoes, washed-out sweatshirt with some metal band printed with these misanthropic-looking, dragon-like figures. Hair shaggy, long, in a color that is not one: indefinable between dark blond and light brown. Skull rings on the fingers, whose nails...

  • Really a lot of details, that makes that lady standing in front of (e.g. the bronzer in the creases around her mouth) - so I am almost afraid that she will notice that I am staring at her, too

  • Yes Chris, you are absolutly right. Thanks for drawing my attention to that

  • Hi Rowan, I like that user's guide style of your two descriptions. Like before: how you shouldn't do it and after: how can you manage. I think the person needs a lot of willpower for the second scenario, but it might work.

  • Lately she has only clammy fingers and cold feet, but keeps the heating turned down, afraid of the cost. But it would be enough for a coffee in the warmth of the small café across the street. How much time would she be able to buy with a coffee before she would be asked to either order something else or leave? Which would be the best place? In the back, next...

  • Yes, I agree, very vivid. I especially like the second description, which is so short and gives me the feeling of a drafty, oversmelling subway-station. Only 4 lines and I got the whole picture.

  • I tried morning pages for a couple of weeks (but never without having a cup of coffee before!) and it was very interesting what flows out of your head onto the page. But morning is definetely not my time of the day.

  • Det er vanskelig, men jeg har lyst på dag fiere.

  • jeg har spist en vegetarisk hamburger til lunsj. Hva har du spist i dag?

    et jordbær, jordbæret, jordbær, jordbærene

  • I added more description on her face expression and give a hint on her age

    She never seems to have time. I have never seen her relaxed like her collegues from time to time are, although there is always something to do when you work in a supermarket. She always seems a bit hectic. A small, wiry person, constantly under tension, never with a smile on her...

  • She never seems to have time. I have never seen her relaxed like her collegues from time to time are, although there is always something to do when you work in a supermarket. She always seems a bit hectic. A small, wiry person, constantly under tension. She never gets involved with customers, when cashing up or when you ask her something, with her thoughts and...

  • Gabriele er på kaffeen. Hun kjøper en te. (å være is irregular; å kjøpe is regular)

  • jeg skal leser en bok. Boken er ny på bibliotheket. Det er mange bøker i biblioteket.

  • Jeg skal kjøpe mange tomater.

  • Har dere pastasaus?
    Er det noe mer jeg kan gjøre for deg?

    I am the one with a happy childhood. My parents come from poor backgrounds, they grew up far away from any modernity in two remote Bavarian villages and met in a larger city where they both made it to some professional success. They fulfilled my every wish before I could even express it. The highest luck for me was on the back of a pony, my mare "Lightning",...

  • Hvor bor du?
    Hvar heter du?

  • Jeg pleier å snakke med Bugi, min nabo

  • Jeg heter Sabine. Jeg er tysk og jeg kommer fra Berlin.

  • Although we think experience film in a cinema is crucial, this november we prepared alternative event formats so that film education networks between schools, cinemas and extracurricular partners can be maintained. For example screening in schools or streaming in homeschooling, we did arrangements with distributors for that. And we recorded talks with...

  • Speak freely and appear (or better: be)committed and passionate

  • The pandemic conditions came too fast for our SchoolCinemaWeeks in spring, so we just had to cancel. But for the SchoolCinemaWeeks now in November, we prepared alternative event formats so that film education networks between schools, cinemas and extracurricular partners can be maintained. For example screening in schools or streaming in homeschooling, we did...

  • same with me, my head moves a lot and for my attempts to smile in between my reading a did not pause enough, so that does not look relaxed but tensed

  • Not really surprised - maybe I expected a little more on "Quite unconfident"

  • I got very nervous and hectic and you can tell from my voice if anything goes in another direction like expected, e.g. a ppp does not work.

  • No, Victoria, money is not the main obstacle, although of course money is needed. SchoolCinemaWeeks are shouldered by many strong partners: you need decision-makers in politics (education & culture) who have recognised the need for film education and are prepared to support it - not only financially. You need partners in the film industry like distributors,...

  • @VíctorLópezOrtega We have the privilege that attending the SchulKinoWochen is recognised as a teaching time in all federal states. This is not a leisure activity for pupils.
    School classes attend a film screening in the cinema. Afterwards there is a film talk with a film educator, which people from the film team or with experts on the theme. Additional, we...

  • Hi, Carola, sorry for my late reply, I didn't check during my holidays. We startet out with strong partners in the Länder (the federal states), which were already working in the field of film education. Additional, there was a strong need on the part of politics and the film industry, to have filmeducation implemented - at first to develop an audience for...

  • @StephanieHartman Thanks for bringing transportation up! This might also be an issue in Germany.

  • Thank you, Ian, that's a very interesting question. We just try to figure out for the upcoming SchoolCinemaWeeks. Dear participants from schools and cinemas, what do you think?

  • If you speak of expensive movie licences you probaby mean school-licences for showing films in the school, not in the cinema. As in SchoolCinemaWeeks we show the films in cinemas, there is no problem with licence fees. The distributors waive the minimum charge and get their share from the entrance fee as usual. Like with "normal" programs, the cinemas settle...

  • With german copyright law, it is not the point where you rent or buy the film, but to what audience you show it. We made up an website about copyright and intelectual property concerning films and schools with many case studies: https://www.wer-hat-urheberrecht.de/infothek/infothek-fuer-lehrkraefte/fallbeispiele/

  • We hear that often: it is very time-consuming to organise the excursion to the cinema in consultation with colleagues, especially if it is not in the immediate vicinity. And more and more pupils who can´t afford the trip and entrance fee! There are schools with a parents-led support association, and in Germany we also have a governmental, so called "Education...

  • Dear @RubenWolfram, it is still too early to speak of real change. Just because the effects of the corona pandemic show how important it would have been to invest in digital infrastructure in schools in the past, the often desolate situation in schools has not changed until now. Perhaps teachers have become more open to digital teaching and learning, that...
