Film Makers

A premiere of a film made by Year 7 students at Tupton Hall School will be held on Tuesday 19 January. 

The short film, on the theme of 'transition', was created over the autumn term in collaboration with professional film maker Dr Rob Speranza. Sixth Form students also helped out on the project.

It will be shown at the Showroom Cinema in Sheffield at 9pm on Tuesday as part of a short film showcase. A screening is also being held in the school's Richard Smith Hall from 4-5pm for students, parents and staff. Film contributions from Parkside and Brookfield schools will also be shown.

The project was part of Into Film, a film learning programme that enables children and young people aged 5 - 19 to see, think, make and imagine through film, regardless of their background or ability.

Head of Media Studies Mr Chris Welch, who worked with the students on the project, said: "The students gave up a lot of their spare time and worked fantastically well to learn about the film making process. It is easy to underestimate the time, resilience and work that goes into a 2.5 minute film."

"They have been a real credit to the school in their commitment, creativity and team working skills and have produced a good short film."
