Wednesday

Day three, more or less the middle of the project week, was an important day in succeeding the main goal of the week. On this day we had to prepare the recording of our own lip dub. Multiple workshop were ahead of us.
The first workshop was immediately a very important one. It was about organizing the lip dub. In groups we divided up the work and started brainstorming. ‘Which kind of choreography will we use?’ and ‘do we need any materials or certain clothing?’ were only a few of the questions occurring. This information was important for the planning of the lip dub, which we were able to finalise in another workshop later that day. In this workshop we planned the whole procedure. It was very important to know what came first, which things we had to bear in mind, et cetera. During these workshop we had to work as a team and talk a lot, which wasn’t always easy.

Later on there was the opportunity to implement the things which our classmates had learned in Duisburg. Over there they had made cobblestone to create a pathway in the local school garden and now it was up to us to do something similar in the yard of the Spanish school. The idea behind it was the same as in Duisburg, the outcome looked great. All of us have left a memory for the future. Some creative pieces of art are now to be admired in Spain.

After all of this, the big moment had arrived. In the last workshop of the day we recorded the scene for the international version of the song ‘Je te donne’. Some takes had to be shot several times, but in the end all of us were glad to have finalised this part. Now it was up to the computer professionals to create a nice video out of the material which had been recorded.

Some of our brains had started smoking because of all the intense labour and creative work. The lunch break was more than deserved and we still hadn’t got used to the late lunch. The siesta was warmly welcomed and we could look forward to the evening activities. For us it was great feeling to be outside in the evening in the beginning of March to play some traditional games. To play the games, you often don’t need an international language to communicate. Body language is more than important. We enjoyed the last part of the day a lot. Two more days were still to come.
