Glenbrae Heroes

This year Room 7 decided to create a narrative as our film festival movie. We had much discussion about what this should be about, but our script writers Luisa, Maara and Linda Kiki created a story that tied two ideas together; Superheroes and our school values.

In our movie, Respect Boy (Levi R) and Energiser Girl (Fusi) support Glenbrae students through a number of testing scenarios. They illustrate values such as encouragement, respect and perseverance. At the end of the film, we discover that anyone can become a superhero by displaying these values. This causes us to wonder whether Fusi and Levi are real superheroes after all... 


Thank you to all of Room 7 who played a part in the movie. Special thanks to Luisa, Maara, Linda Kiki, Chris, Sam, Moses, Dora, Hemi, Danny-Joe, Taki, Fusi and Levi R who put in several hours of work (some of which were spent outside in the wind) and re-shot some scenes multiple times.

  1. Hi Room 7,
    I really enjoyed watching your film! How long did it take to make? All the actors did a wonderful job and I am sure there were lots of behind the scenes people that worked hard on the editing as well. I really liked the shot where they were doing the test and the camera went low, right before the heros came in. Very artistic!

  3. Hi there Glenbrae!I really enjoyed your video. It was really inspiring while at the same time being inspirational. The Heroes were helping others complete what they thought they couldn’t do and I thought that was really cool. I can kind of relate because there have been many times where I thought I couldn’t complete something, but I told myself I could and in the end I did it! But anyway, it was really enjoyable, and keep up the good work!

  11. Hi glenbrea,
    It had funny music on it and it was really funny how the super heroes showed up because their was loud music when they went on the class room,it was very nice of them as well when they were helping people the was just gonna give up in the test and other things they were gonna give up on, at the end they had to go back to their planet but they gave their superhero powers to two other kids to keep helping other on the end it was a great video with a great vibe.

  15. Hey Room 7. I really enjoyed watching your movie. In some of the moments I could actually relate to. Like when that guy was really tired of running but he knew he had to continue to the finish line. Overall I feel like this video gave me inspiration not to give up even when something is telling me to not continue.

  18. Very good acting Room 7, there should be a lot of people who are like the two heros Energiser Girl and Respect boy, the only thing that was wrong with your video was the quality but I give you a 10 out of 10 for your movie.

  19. HEY Room 7, I really enjoyed and loved your little clip is very inspirational and really fun to watch. I think use did very well and used probably worked hard. Your video is bomb and might just be the most coolest one. I hope you guys are still helping people. You made a massive difference good on you guys. Also Levi and Fusi you acting is on point and yous should be comedians because you guys are very funny you guys really made me laugh. Also Room 7 you's were very good you's made the movie come alive.
    NICE JOB GUYS

  41. Hello room seven I thought your movie was amazing. I found it really interesting that the movie had a meaning behind it. Because of the meaning behind the movie and what in my opinion you were aiming for in the movie it was a superb movie. Also one which I think many people will remember as the years come and if you want to over at the hub 9 blog we have some spectacular movies. EG: Expectation VS Reality.
