Following on from the information evening held in December there are a further two evening sessions for teachers interested in taking part in the new and innovative project called: “Make a Movie”.
Workshop 1 will go through the basic elements used for movie making as well as tools needed; the shot list for movies, green screen and participants will plan and shoot their own mini movie.
Workshop 2 will cover the editing side of the movie; how to add effects, music and how to put together and edit footage. Finally animation and stop motion will be shown to participants as an alternative way of making movies.
The aim of this practical project is to introduce and promote filmmaking in schools.
Filmmaking is an excellent way to integrate multiple subjects from the primary curriculum. It offers a novel opportunity to enhance the use of oral language and communication skills, while also promoting creativity, responsibility, individualism and co-operation in students, either in a mainstream classroom or special education setting. Participating in this project is a fun and innovative way to help children to learn in a child-led, discovery based learning setting.
The theme of the project for 2019 will be ‘Remake’.
The two practical two-hour workshops will take place on Thursday 7th February and Thursday 4th April to support teachers to develop filmmaking in their school.
Participant schools will be invited to a special screening of all the edited short movies in the Solstice Arts Centre on May 31st 2019.
