Throughout March, twenty students across 5/6 were fortunate enough to participate in the Darebin Film Project.
This film course consisted of four workshops run by professional film maker Emma Roberts, taking students through the different phases of film production: from idea development and script writing through to shooting and post-production.
The students threw themselves into the project, working collaboratively and showing wonderful creativity. They worked tirelessly during lunch times and any spare moments they had – re-shooting scenes, composing soundtracks or putting the finishing touches on their final edit – in order to the meet the end of term deadline.
Then, at the end of term one, each of the five production companies premiered their film to all 5/6 students. It is anticipated that all five films will also be shown at the upcoming Darebin Film Festival (details will be provided to participating students when they are available).
