School is almost done! Academy is almost here! I hope you're all preparing yourselves for the awesomeness that is Academy... I know I'm counting down the days!
We'll all want a special way to look back upon our experiences at Academy. By the end of three weeks, we'll have had many fun events, wacky adventures, and inside jokes. And unlike the Library of Alexandria, we'll have a perfect way of immortalizing all our memories! (Too soon?)
Introducing.... the Memoranda DVD!
Throughout Academy, we'll be taking pictures and videos of everything that happens - from classes to meals to dorms to field trips - and organizing them into a slideshow. We can add some fun captions, jokes, ... and memes, perhaps? And we will record our performance of Miles Gloriosus. All of this will be collected onto a DVD for all the students and teachers to watch when we return home. After all - Academia memoranda est. Academy must be remembered!
Do you have a camera with an SD card? Bring it with you and help us record your experiences!
Don't have a camera, but love taking pictures? We've got some for you to use!
Do you like using iMovie and writing amusing captions for pictures? Think about joining the Memoranda team!
