APE's short films

This winter APE has put our energy into creating two short films for different short film contests.

The first contest was for Texas' Collaborative Summer Reading program. The challenge was to make a movie inspired by this year's theme for Summer Reading "Spark a Reaction" in 1 minute and 30 seconds (which was a BIT of a squeeze). Our artistic volunteers created a short comedic narrative they titled "The Cursed Book."

 

Unfortunately due to some scheduling difficulties APE wasn't quite able to finish this movie in time from the contest's deadline.

First Songs

There was a special guest this morning at the Aldine Library's Bilingual Storytime. Ms. Sandra from the Houston Grand Opera (HGO) came to present "First Songs." She taught moms and dads how to sing, read and play with their children in a meaningful, creative and fun way. Thanks for coming, Sandra!
