Children have a ball learning new skills that get them physically active and learning the important foundational skills of all theatrical arts. Perfect for a one off holiday incursion or a weekly class leading to an end of term performance.
Filmmaking: Make a Documentary
Making a documentary is a really big job! Kids will research a topic they care about and come up with three key points to demonstrate in their film. They have to think about how they’re going to tell their story, the style and structure, who they’re going to interview and what’s exciting about their idea for audiences. This is a fact finding mission that’s highly collaborative where everyone contributes equally to the end result.
Filmmaking: Make a Rock/Pop Music Video
This option works kids creative imagination as they illustrate the underlying themes and emotions in the song. The music may be an existing soundtrack, a self recorded original or cover of a song depending on experience. Primary school classes will usually have a song chosen for them. This contemporary class offers something for everyone - including visual artists and lovers of special effects. A perfect combination class where the visual storytellers and technicians behind the camera will get as much out of it as the performers in front of the camera. All will gain an excellent introduction to the artistic demands of telling a dramatized, musical story on screen and being a part of the creative process from beginning to end.
This can be a one off interactive incursion or a weekly incursion best suited to children in years 7 to 12. Led by actors from the prestigious Shakespearean company 'Sport For Jove' and Bell Shakespeare, children will learn how to read and interpret Shakespeare's text for the stage and discover the rhythm, rhyme and meter that underpins the action and allows the actors to understand, love and trust the stories and language that are as relevant today as ever. These workshops culminate in a performance and can be taken for one term or more.
