Video of the Week: "Beauty & the Beast as Told by Emoji"

In my YouTubing this morning I've found myself a new mentor "text" playlist: "as Told by Emoji." I'm loving all of the creative ways that Disney is playing off of the devices in our hands, like in this example of Beauty and the Beast.

I already have so many ideas about how this is going to fit into my short story unit plan in the fall. (I think I might even just try it out this week.) Here are a few of the things I'm thinking about: 

  • What sound effects are present in this film?
  • How do the creators effectively create characters? 
  • What part of the video did you feel was the most creative telling of the story? 
  • Can you create a story just with emojis?
