Year 5 Producing and Filming Day - from start to finish: lights, camera, ACTION!


Today, the Year 5 children took part in an inspirational day based around the well known film, 'E.T'. Pooling together experts from across our fantastic parent body, the children were shown an insight into how films are created, right from the very initial stages, through to editing and making finishing touches. They learnt about the amount of detail and work that goes in to building sets for a film, they explored how make up can be used to create and explore characters, how story boarding and characterisation is key to producing an effective piece of film and how authentic acting can make anyone believe anything!

At the end of the day, the children got the incredible opportunity to view their own ending to 'E.T' which was filmed and pieced together throughout the workshops during the day, where they and their teachers starred in their very own film!

Feeling inspired by film, the buzz amongst the children was been sensational- their energy, passion and enthusiasm was second to none- no doubt we have some budding film producers or actors and actresses in the making! 

For all those who helped make it such a special day- thank you!
