OMG Academy starts next weekend! I hope you're ready for an awesome three weeks - I know I'm counting down the days until driving to Ashland!
By the end of our three weeks, we will have had many fun events, wacky adventures, and inside jokes. (BTW how about that future perfect there?) And we don't want our Academy to suffer the same fate as books 46-142 of Livy's Histories, so we have to make sure we preserve all the memories we can!
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 will add some captions and write some narration in Latin, ... and throw in some memes, perhaps? We will also record the final performance of the play. All of this will be collected onto a DVD for everyone 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 record our experiences!
Don't have a camera, but love taking pictures? We've got some cameras you can use!
Do you like using iMovie or WeVid, or writing in Latin? Join the Memoranda team!
