Our movie is about Article 1 Section and 2. The section 1 states that congress splits up into House of Representatives and the Senate. Section 2 says that you must be 25 years old, know a lot about your state and be a citizen for 7 years in order to run for Representative.
We made a video showing our viewers all the requirements you must fufill in order to be a representative. There was one girl (Dom) who was only 16. She was not allowed to run because she was too young. I was a girl who knew nothing about her state. Carly (Sergio in the video) was from Mexico and had only been a citizen in the United States for 3 months. You must be in the state for 7 years.
We had some difficulties making our video with Windows Movie Maker. Sometimes it wouldn’t save to the right folder. Sometimes it froze. It was so hard but eventually the video came out good.
Through this process, I learned that you can figure out what things say, even if the words are difficult to understand. In the beginning, we had to figure out what our section of the Constitution meant. It was really, really hard but we figured it out and once we did, the rest was easy.
