Door to the Unknown

April 29, 2012

The film is finished, what a wonderful premiere it had!
Screened to parents, family, teachers and friends – a celebration and sharing of the film, and much talk of the friendships made during the project.
Watch the film, and be sure to check out the behind the scenes clips of music making, animations, and the spooky film footage from the woods – with six days of hard work squeezed into a six minute film, a lot had to be left out…


Music and Monsters

March 24, 2012

Thinking about adding atmosphere to our film, we spent the morning making sound effects – looping guitar twangs, ipad tinkles, swooshing rain sticks and noisy drums. Another busy afternoon too, monsters attacking Barney from every angle. Meanwhile Glyn planned the voiveover narration for the film. One more session to go, we’re excited to see how things come together!

Update – Into Other Worlds

March 22, 2012

We have all been busy working on the film. The ideas for the story keep changing -that seems only right though, as the world in the film is titled Evolvia! Primary pupils have joined us for some fun out in the woods – acting and hiding in amongst the trees. We’ve also been busy building different backdrops for our film – mixing  splattered paints with gathered twigs, cones and moss. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve acted as  ourlseves and wild beasts on a green screen, and we’ve animated our monsters too!

Monsters in the woods

Something strange and mysterious is happening in the woods…

Student planning day

February 27, 2012

Our first day, making, meeting new friends, experimenting, learning.

After exploring the woods around school, encountering a bear and imagining the other evolving creatures out there, we devised a plan. We will make a film about visiting another world, a place where wierd and dangerous beasts lurk. Our only chance of survival is to call for ‘backup’ and hope they come quick.
