Bonus DVD

In this activity, students create a 'bonus' audio track for a movie. They simply instruct the listener where to cue the movie on a DVD player and then start the audio simultaneously. The student's commentary can be informational about the movie's background, about the plot, or historical significance of the scene. You can have students do 'color commentary' or 'play by play'. Here are two examples.

This one is from donnab and focuses on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

This one is from doodahpod and focuses on Mean Girls. There is an interesting use of the left/right stereo that lets a listener control the sound from the movie clip and from the commentary.
