Lights, Camera, Action!

May 9, 2023

The Second Form tested their skills both in front of and behind the camera, in an exciting ‘Film in a Day’ workshop. They learned how to produce and direct films using state-of-the-art technology and how to use a variety of different shots to create tension, using only their incredible acting skills and a healthy dose of dramatic music.

They were then given a masterclass in the art of safely and realistically using fighting techniques from actors who had worked on the Mission Impossible film with Tom Cruise. This created great excitement amongst the pupils who asked many meaningful questions on the experiences they have had in the film industry.

Congratulations to Joel (Harcourt), Bing (Queen Anne), Luella (Swift), Elsa (Swift), Daisy (Vanbrugh), Heather (Vanbrugh), Bella (Queen Anne) and Charles (Queen Anne) who won Best Picture on the day.
