Sixth form media studies were able to try out their new equipment and at the same time build up valuable links with their primary stars. Teresa Graham, Year 5 Teacher at Clifton Primary, St.Annes, appealed for help to the budding film technicians so that her students could put on record their latest studies. The pupils had prepared a News Bulletin, which included all the relevant components like an Oscar Ceremony, Sports News and the weather forecast as part of their Drama Education.
LSA Students were able to use their new 'green screen', so they could superimpose studio images at the back of the actors, and try out their new state-of-the -art camera recently acquired through the aid of the school Development Fund.. They could also experiment with sound layers and voice-overs.
Media Studies teacher Joanne Partridge said ""This was a great opportunity for us to use our new equipment to broaden A level Media Studies opportunities, and at the same time provide a useful real experience, whilst enhancing the primary pupils' contributions. As a school we hope to offer regular filming opportunities next academic year to organisations in the local community and schools. The day was great fun and provided enjoyment for all of us."
Sixth Form students Tomara Henkelis and Lacey Houghton said "This was our first official location work and we feel we have made a good start".
Primary actor Cameron Hayes (Year 5) said. "It was awesome to see the banks of equipment. It seemed just like a real studio. In fact we found it mind-boggling!"
