Film Project Opportunity

My Future East Lothian – Film Project

We have a great opportunity for some of our pupils to take the lead in the production of a film which will explore how they see living and working in their local authority and community in the future. Pupils will plan, write and develop skills in media production to produce their piece.

Our school librarian, working alongside another school’s librarian and pupils, will link with partners from Queen Margaret University. QMU will provide pupils with the opportunity to engage in workshops where they can collaboratively decide the format of the work; produce a script and project manage the creation of their piece. The creative process will see pupils use their school libraries as film production offices and filming will be done within and outside of the normal school day.

The process will see pupils gain literacy skills through script and report writing, and they will also gain experience in creative and digital technologies which will impact on their life-long learning and provide skills for future workforce career pathways.

Pupils across all year groups are welcome to take part in the project, however they must be fully committed to attending meetings, workshops and creative events.  Any interested pupils should come to an initial first meeting in the school library at lunchtime on Wednesday 22nd May (any senior pupils who wish to take part can email to register their interest and attend meetings after the end of exam leave).
