In a project with ICT and English, Year 7 pupils have been scripting, shooting and editing a short movie. Groups of 3-5 students worked together on producing the films.
Using Media Wales' "Making Movies Make Sense" to help them understand about camera angles and composition, they tried to use different techniques to help convey meaning in their work.
As usual, in any film project, much of the hard work is carried out without a camera in hand, namely planning and editing. The project was a great success and students learnt lots about the film-making process. It was good to see that even at the end of the project they all had ideas about how they could further improve their work if they had the opportunity.
Well done to all those involved.
