The Sequel is a unique practical filmmaking event for up to 100 students who have completed the One Day Film School and want to take their filmmaking skills to the next level. The Sequel builds on skills already learned and introduces students to challenging new areas such as sound recording, editing, music and effects, to create professional results. Students shoot, edit and post-produce their own films, which can later be distributed via the school intranet or virtual learning environment (VLE).
We conduct The One Day Film School – The Sequel on school campus and bring along all the equipment to give the students a truly hands-on experience.
The practical requirements for the school are:
This was a wonderful day for the students, as they could put their film making skills into practice, as well as develop editing, music, special effects and sound techniques. These skills are used for later assignments within the curriculum, to create films to support class texts or topics. I thoroughly recommend the day to any school. The day is exciting and stimulating for weeks and is a talking point in and out of the classroom, between students and their families, as well as providing good publicity for the school when prospective parents are touring.
The Sequel really stretched studentsʼ technical film-making abilities and they relished the challenge and urgency of making and editing their films in the time available.The different roles – post-production, editing etc as well as actors, producers, directors, camera operators – really enabled all students to offer something to the process and they clearly felt stimulated and proud of what they produced. These teamwork as well as technical skills are certainly transferable in- and outside of- the classroom.
If you are thinking of an idea for pupil induction, then this company will provide you with an excellent day of imagination, fun and the learning of new skills all within the context of group integration and team-building.
All the YFA staff were able to combine clear and engaging presentation skills with expert instruction on all aspects of the filmmaking process. I was more than happy to make a repeat booking the very same day.
