Week 12: 1 April 2019
The film making process began in earnest this week with 33 pupils from Ormiston Academy Sudbury and Thomas Gainsborough School coming together for two pre-productions sessions run by Offshoot Foundation. The sessions started the pupil’s journey of learning about the film making process and prepared them for the interviews and editing stages that will be begin after the Easter holiday. Fuelled with cookies and hot cross buns, they made new friends whilst learning filming, interviewing and editing skills. They really enjoyed mixing and finding out about each other’s school, family life, communism and Brexit during the practice interviews they filmed and edited, all subjects chosen by the year 9 students themselves!
