Film Making - Literacy and The Lens


Film making and its links to literacy aren’t new but it can captivate and fill students with enthusiasm. This work can also be aimed at children who need to build confidence in Speaking and Listening skills.


We view the filmmaking process as literature in nature, involving the development, adaptation, and telling of stories. What the pupils come to understand, about film as a medium for communication, is how it links perfectly with authorial intent, what an author portrays with the written word.


Whilst learning about the basic elements of filmmaking; such as image, sound, time, motion, lighting, scenes, settings, sequence, framing, composition and camera angle. Through these the pupils learn more about improving their writing skills. .
