8 For 8 – The Island Book Trailer

This is a follow-up of my first 8 for 8 post. If you haven’t read it then it will help you to understand this page.

When I’d read all of the 8 for 8 books, my favourite was The Island by M. A. Bennett. The Island is about a boy called Lincoln (Link) who is a nerd and moves to a new school from being homeschooled by his parents, who were professors at Oxford University. Link is bullied at the new school, because he came last in a run, which determines where you are in the school hierarchy. He got the lowest time ever. This means that he’s treated like a slave and has to follow the instructions that the fastest runners give him.

When Link gets stuck with his classmates on a desert island after a plane crash it seems like it might be hell on earth. However, Link is the one giving orders now. Who knows what might happen to the people on the island now?

This book is based on BBC’s Desert Island Discs and has a Lord of The Flies theme.

I decided to make a trailer for this book. I used some LEGO to make the scenes as well as a camera and iMovie to make it look good.

Enjoy,

I enjoyed making this video, as it was fun and challenging!
