Films by the Film, TV & Video Production level 5 students.
The Film Production course introduces students to a range of techniques and skills necessary for a successful career in the world of filmmaking. Students develop literacy in visual storytelling and design by turning their own creative ideas and concepts into fully developed short films and studio based TV programmes. This years films are remarkable in light of the restrictions under which the students worked. Much of what is on show was filmed with smartphones and edited with free online editing software. The beauty of ingenuity is what is on show this year.
