Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars

The Star Wars movie series is six full-length movies strong and had spawned countless spoofs and copies. The Phineas and Ferb TV series is in its fifth season on the Disney Channel and has quite a different fan base. Nevertheless this show was brought to a small screen near you. I am a fan of both genres. This “made for TV movie” was only one hour long and a good friend called me just as it started. I admit I was distracted and unable to give this creative endeavor my undivided attention. That being said, “IT WORKED”! Disney captured the heart and voice of both enterprises. This film was funny, entertaining, and fun to watch. It told a whole story, with good characterizations and a few creative twists. I hope to watch this movie again if it ever becomes a “rerun”. I enjoyed it to the full and look forward to seeing it again. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
