Full-length Movies - Animal Farm and 1984

Here is some more evidence of why Open Culture is one of my favorite blogs to read. This morning they posted two great YouTube discoveries; full-length productions of George Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm. I've embedded Animal Farm below.

Open Culture has included both works as free ebooks and audiobooks in their collections.

Applications for Education
If you use either 1984 or Animal Farm in your classroom (I had to read both in high school), you might want to show parts or all of these videos to your students after they have read the books. If you want to use just a part of one of the videos you might want to try using one of these tools to clip the section that you need.
