Year 8 play around with film

Filming of the year 8 play, This Changes Everything, carries on apace. Head of Drama, Mr Whyld has been "bowled over by the ingenuity, creativity, sheer hard work and passion put into what I call 'The Oil Rig' film. Talk about making the best of a very difficult situation - I am in awe of year 8 and their director, Mrs Mapstone."

Mrs Mapstone sent the newsletter this sneak peak of a scene shot on greenscreen in Erin's and Selvi's gardens, along with an interesting behind the scenes observation. "You'll notice that Selvi (on the right) isn't as clear as Erin. This is because Selvi was shot via Zoom. This led to the discovery that we would have to film everything on devices."

Despite such learning curves, she continued, "we've had enormous fun finding locations around school and eating multiple packets of crisps - part of the story line!" We can't wait to see the final edit!
