Film Club

Film Club

 

Film Club runs after school on a Monday, 3:15 until 5:00. It gives children an opportunity to experience a variety of films from different genres, in a relaxed environment. Children are also encouraged to write a review, which helps them think about certain aspects of the film, such as the sound track, characters, plot and animation. All children who attend the club will become a member of IntoFilm - the organisation that provides the films and runs competitions for the club.

Another aspect of the club is Film Making. As we are a member of IntoFilm, the organisation provides opportunities for schools to attend a film making event. During this event, a select number of children will be chosen to make a short film; maybe an animation or a Stop Motion film. This opportunity allows children to develop their confidence and build on skills that they have learnt in the classroom, such as literacy and communication.

Film club were lucky enough to be offered the opportunity of working with a professional film maker through Intofilm. Adam from Film City came into school for 3 days and worked with a group of year 6 children. They learnt all about the film making process including: planning, sorting props and costumes, using cameras, clapperboards and director cues, as well as the editing process.
