The Giver - Lois Lowry I remember making a short film of this back in middle school with some classmates when our class was assigned the book. It was probably one of the highlights of my middle school career. I beat out a male classmate to play the role of the Giver, wearing a grey t-shirt with rainbow-coloured butterflies on it (the best I could do to show the book's greyscale colouring). The quality of the film, the script, the acting, the setting and the props were downright terrible, far below even an amateur level, but it was the best a bunch of eighth graders could do and we had fun doing it. I think one of my old classmates still has the only surviving copy of our project on an old VHS tape. Oh, what I'd give to watch it again...
