Throughout the first term, all of us in Little Green Pig worked together and created a video inspired by Kitty AI. Kitty AI is a short film created by Pinar Yoldas and is what her predictions are of the future in 2039.
In groups, we all created topics that we thought would happen in 2039 (Robots, New Medicines etc). Everybody chose a topic which they were passionate about. I chose the topic of ‘New Inventions’.
We wrote about our topic which all of them was created into a video called ‘Message Received_’ by our editor Lucas. He showed us the film, which then we gave him improvements he could make.
Our short film was shown in the BrightonDigitalFestival – at Sussex University. The whole group had a day trip to the university. We watched the short film Kitty AI and then watched the final edition of our video. After watching, we went up on stage and answered a question each. My question was ‘What topic did you choose and why?’. Finally, we watched some other presentations.
I enjoyed this project because we got to show other people what we think will happen in the future. Also, because we
got to study and learn about a source which we wouldn’t usually learn about. My favourite part of this project is finally showing everyone at the University our short film.
‘Now in 2039, there are many new inventions, some good and some bad.
The good inventions help people live their daily lives.
Teleportation is used daily and helps people travel more easier and quicker.
Teleportation is the act of moving objects one place to another.
This helps move objects at factories and farms.
A cruel way of using teleportation is by moving bombs … which has now led to many more unpredictable and gruesome terrorist attacks.
There are many new inventions such as holograms, self-driving cars and more.’
Little green pig – Brighton digital festival trip
On Friday 13th Of October we went to Sussex university as we were taking part in the Brighton digital festival
They set us a task to make a 3-4 minute film about what we think it will be like in 2039. The first week we watched a film called Kitty AI and we had to use that to inspire us to make our own film. On the second week we chose the topics we wanted to write about and then we started to write our parts it only had to be 30-60 words. Then the third week we had a film producer and editor come in and then he went away and made the film that had our own words in. Then the fourth week he came in and showed us the film he put together and we made some changes, also we got ready for a Q and A, which was going to happen on the day of the event.
On Friday the 13th we went to watch our film be presented to an audience
It was really fun!!!

On Friday 13th October, Little Green Pig travelled to the Attenborough Centre at the University Of Sussex to showcase our most recent project. Little Green Pig are a creative writing club and mentoring charity that visit PACA after school on Tuesdays who give young writers space to create. The Brighton Digital Festival challenged us to create a 4minute film inspired by Pinar Yoldas and her creation of ‘The Kitty AI’ and so, over the course of 4 weeks, we watched the film, reflected on its themes and then wrote a script and created our own response. We presented our finished project at The Messy Edge conference at the university whereby we showed our film, spoke about our personal experiences, shared the challenges of the making of our film, and our thoughts on the future…
Whilst creating our film response called ‘A Message Received’, we were challenged with many difficulties. Every one of us shared our opinions, ideas and thoughts in many debates in order to improve and create a project we were all proud of; using both teamwork and independence along with problem solving and determination, we created a futuristic film which portrayed many views on the future like robots, inventions, medicine and WW3. To evaluate my project experience, I believe reflecting on the themes of the original film was found difficult by not only myself but the other students involved. During our project, I learnt how to research both information and images accurately, how to create useful improvements and how to write an influential, short speech!
