The Newbery Awards honor excellence in Young Adult fiction. They represent a distinguished and exhalted tradition in literature and celebrate the books that exemplify that tradition. Sometimes, though, the books can be so danged LONG.
There is a solution! James Kennedy, has created a website where you can upload your own SUPERCONDENSED 90-second adaptation of previous Newbery winners. Even better? It’s been brought to our attention that his example video, “A Wrinkle in Time” in 90 Seconds, stars several Figment users!
Although we aren’t certain, we are pretty sure that the video made use of a specially trained stunt-brain, so we can say with some confidence that no Figmenti were hurt in the filming of this video.
Are you cinematic-ally inclined? You have until September 15th, 2011 to submit your own!
