Learning Space 1 is proud to present PokeBlade as one of our entries into the 2022 Manaiakalani Film Festival. PokeBlade is a parody (see below) of Pokemon and BeyBlade, two popular franchises among children.
The students who helped create this film had some great ideas, and were all enthusiastic about creating the film. We began with a proper writing and storyboarding process, but due to weather we ended up rushing towards the end.
What is a parody? A parody is a play on something, like making fun of something because it is so popular. In the PokeBlade story, we used many tropes from both anime and the “bully” trope that is common in many children’s action shows. Yes, that means this movie is a complete work of fiction that does not represent the values or students of Panmure Bridge School.
