Students show off their film at the Imperial War Museum
A group of students travelled to London to see a film they created being screened at the Imperial War Museum.
A group of 10 students had been working on the film since February. They were given a brief to create a film on the theme of ‘Building a Truce’.
Three of the group members - Matthew Ford, Emily Russell and Shona Duncan, who are all in Year 8 - travelled to the Imperial War Museum on Friday, September 21, with the Academy’s Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator Claire Howsam to see the film being screened there.
The students filmed and edited all of their footage to create the final film, which is 5 minutes long.
They previously visited the museum in March to film footage for their movie.
Miss Howsam said: “They had a brilliant day. They were met by Catherine Roberts, curator of the Imperial War Museum North, and Sally Molineaux, who employed their media skills again to interview people about their experiences of war and peace.
“They got to interview the Red Cross, who were there talking about the peacekeeping actions they do.
“They were very proud of their film, it got a round of applause.”
