“The students loved it, and some were able to shine, where normally their light is hidden. The English teacher involved took the idea to his HoD independently of me to ask if it could run again.”

APPROACH & PREPERATION

The approach is highly engaging, hands-on, and collaborative

It strongly focuses on teamwork. Students work in groups of 4 or 5 and produce a film they can share with family and friends. They will incorporate different shots, camera angles, overlaying music or images, and integrate iPad apps for effect. The incursion increases multimedia skills and provides a greater understanding of various filmmaking techniques and their effects.

All through this incursion is for one day, we can customise it for schools that need support producing films for a film festival—interested in Multi-day incursions? Click here

There is minimal preparation required for class teachers. StarTime can provide pre-written scripts, so it’s plug-and-play. However, you may want your students to write their own script. In this case, StarTime will provide script templates for students to write scripts before the incursion.
