Congratulations Room 6 (and your friends from the other schools involved).
I am sitting here at the film festival watching your movie right now and I can hear how much the audience is enjoying it. What a great concept you had for this movie.
Moli and Sosaia were fantastic on the stage introducing the movie too. Well done to all of you.

Hi Room 6 !
Your sasa movie is so cool. I like the collaborative effort because it is not easy to produce a movie with so many different components or sections.

Mrs. She.

Well done Tamaki Intermediate!! Your movie was amazing. I thought it was great that you got children from other countries and Grey Lynn to join in. You should be proud of what you have achieved.

Thanks you all so much for your feedback! Mrs Burt did an amazing job running the event, the students were thrilled to be involved and it was a wonderful day. A great turn out of parents in the evening too! A very special occasion, one that we wont forget in a hurry!

Awesome movie guys!

Your movie was so interesting, my eyes were glued to the screen until the end. It was very interesting to see the different takes on the 'sasa', especially the ones from the USA and England. I loved how they included their own flavour/style into it.

They must of had an expert helping them in Grey Lynn because they looked very good. Well done Moli and team.

@ Mister P - Yes! If you drumming group needs international flavour let us know... plenty of talented students who can drum here with a Pacific flavour...
@ Mrs Langitupu - thanks for your feedback, yes I really think the flavour of the Sasa was highlighted by the international input to it and the kids were thrilled to see other countries giving it a go...

That was a funny and a cool movie at the same time Tamaki. It was good to see that other countries are trying to learn more about samoan things. i was also hoping that you guys can teach me different moves to add to the sasa. hope too see your next movie soon.

Hey guys great movie I liked the way that other people around the world did different sasa's and that was really awesome.I think the funniest part of the story is when Sasiah takes a drumatic pause.

Hey Tamaki Int

Its me again. I just wanted to share with you that since we have watched your movie, everyone in my class wants to watch it over and over again. (Room 18)

I keep telling them to turn the volume down on the computer and to use the headphones, because they keep turning it up for everyone to hear.

Well done for creating such a popular movie.
