King Edward VI High School For Girls - One Day Film School

Partner: KEHS Primary School Network (5)
Partner type: Community Group
Project category: Design and Technology

The One Day Film School offers large groups of students a great practical introduction to filmmaking and visual media creation. The culmination of the day sees students working in teams to create their own Ten-Shot films, all in time for a Film Festival and awards ceremony. Workshops cover film history, screenwriting and camerawork, as well as onscreen fight choreography (great for waking the students up!) Once they have mastered the skills they need, itʼs up to the students to plan and shoot their own Ten-Shot Film in a real-world environment: they must fulfil specific roles within their teams and hit project deadlines to be in with a chance of winning the coveted Best Film award!
