Day Five was a relief to have since we weren't completely finished with our project yet, but after taking the temperature of the room, we were slightly ahead of the curve having already spent a lot of time in iMovie before the rest of the workshop. Our students were able to take their time evaluating what they had done in the previous workday and made very few changes. They both liked hearing about what they could do with GarageBand, but didn't incorporate it at all into The Ugly Pumpkin. I think that by having an abstract approach to the storytelling, the students were less "threatened" to produce something super recognizable and therefore were able to make something completely unique. I feel like they did a majority of the work on the project and that there is very little influence of the mentors on their final production of the narrative.
