Hi, my name is Max, as you know. I’m 10 and I have a little sister. She can be very funny. And annoying. I also have a brilliant mother and an awesome brother and father. We just moved to Newtown last year and I’m just starting to get used to it; the busy streets, the sirens going up and down King St, the smell of the fresh dew on the leaves outside when we wake up at seven o’clock in the morning. I’m just kidding, we can’t really smell it.
I like to draw, look fancy, and make movies on the iPad. I like to draw Star Wars and I make my own comics. My favourite comic that I’ve made so far is Wormling about an evil inventor trying to build an armageddon device, but instead he makes a tiny worm than can eat anything. My favourite comic that I like to read is The Simpsons by Matt Groening, and Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi.
I like to look formal. I like to wear button-up shirts, my bow tie and a blazer. I also like hats, I’m not sure what the name of the hat that I like is called, it’s like a top hat but the top bit is smaller. My favourite casual outfit would be jeans and a plain t-shirt with a button-up shirt over the top with the sleeves rolled up.
I like to make stop-motion Lego movies. I also like to make movies with my family and friends in them. Usually I ask Rose my sister to star in them because I’m too busy doing the camera. I also edit them on iMovie. My favourite movie that I’ve made is probably Please, a movie about asking my mum and then my dad if I can eat watermelon. They keep telling me to ask the other parent until I break out into song and dance to Please, Please, Please by James Brown. My ultimate movie to make would be a Star Wars movie in the Star Wars saga.
I think something funny about me is that I can make weird noises (Dad thinks that’s funny).
Signing off for now — Max
