Here is a student created film by one of my US Literature classes.

After they had some good ideas going onto paper, I asked if anyone knew how to use a camera, who wanted to direct, and who knew how to put things together in Windows Movie Maker.
They truly exceeded my expectations, and this great movie is what they came up with:
