Artis Film

Artis Film is an exciting weekly term time programme that explores aspects of filmmaking. This programme stimulates children’s literacy and teamwork skills through film and the performing arts.

A highly trained professional leads the classes through the exhilarating journey of producing a film, enabling children to gain knowledge of the filmmaking process. Children will experience the various stages of making a film, including:

  • using filmmaking equipment and ICT tools
  • creating and structuring stories for film
  • understanding and taking on the roles of the film industry
  • interpreting films
  • using the vocabulary of filmmaking
  • performing on camera
  • composing and performing sound for film

Artis Film involves developing story lines, writing scripts and drawing up story boards. Then comes casting, filming, editing and composing a soundtrack. Working in small teams, children have plenty of opportunities to hone their negotiating skills and use filmmaking equipment. There is a role for everyone.

Filmmaking is full of exciting challenges. Children’s faces simply fill with pride when they see the final results.
