Liv­ing ‘alien’ comes to Earth

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - LOCAL - BY MALACHY

In May pho­tog­ra­pher Jonathan May made a real alien suit and came to New­found­land from Syd­ney, Aus­tralia to make a movie. His alien’s name is Trevor. He is 6 ft. 2 and 185 pounds and he has ex­tra­long limbs and is very nim­ble. Trevor likes to eat pou­tine. Be­fore, Jonathan had to use a drone for a cam­era while he was in the cos­tume and then he found a per­son the same size and height as him to be Trevor while he filmed. He had to park his R V be­hind things be­cause peo­ple would come and knock on the win­dow for pic­tures with him. He likes park­ing by wa­ter be­cause it re­minds him of surf­ing. He surfs back in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia.

“Rent­ing the R V on my own has been so much fun, just be­ing able to drive to an un­known spot, pull up and sleep there in the dark and then wake up in a for­eign place that is a sur­prise is so much fun,” Jonathan says. If you didn’t know, an R V is a camper van.

Jonathan says he was a lit­tle ner­vous about com­ing here by him­self when he had not been here be­fore but he was brave and he says you need to be­lieve in your­self and work hard if you want to be suc­cess­ful. He says he was so happy he came here be­cause it was fun. He wants to come back.

When the movie is done you will be able to watch it on­line. For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.jonathan­maypho­tog­ra­phy.com.

Tele­vi­sion

By: Lilyanne

My fa­vorite Net­flix show The coolest show I’ve ever watched is about four teenage girls. The show is called Project Mc2. This show is a Net­flix orig­i­nal. The char­ac­ter’s names are Mck­eyla, Adri­enne, Cam­ryn and Bry­den. It’s about four spy girls who go on mis­sions and trips to lots of places like Paris and hide un­der dark tun­nels. It is a re­ally good show and it teaches me cool and nice things like fin­ger print dust. They even have elec­tric skate­boards. It’s an awe­some idea! They have red cars that run on wa­ter! I would rec­om­mend this show for kids in grade one to grade six. I love this show and a lot more peo­ple should watch it!
