The students were given task to shoot any one scene from the play 'Long Day's Journey into Night' (a play by Eugene O'Neill). The students were supposed to adapt the script of the play for short video, rewrite dialogues, storyboard the scene, rehearse the dialogues, set camera angles, find location, shoot the scene, edit it and then upload on their YouTube channel.

The first video is not on the play 'Long Day's Journey into Night' but it is one of the earliest attempt to use 'studio activities' in ELT classroom.
