Movie Making Premier – P7a

A reminder that there will be a presentation of the movie that P7a contributed to screened at the Brunton Theatre on Wednesday 22nd May at 10.30am. All parents/carers/ wider family are invited to come along to the free event.

Here is the official press release for the project:

“Movie Making Apprentices”

An exciting new film is set to be screened at the Brunton on Wednesday 22nd May, 10.30am, all created by East Lothian Secondary and Primary School pupils.  The schools set up as four separate business teams to get their film made on schedule and on budget.

Musselburgh Grammar School pupils acted as the production company and steered the whole script, voice recording and final edit. Whitecraig Primary School P7’s carefully designed and created all the artwork; Burgh Primary School learnt the skills of professional animators to bring the story to life; and finally Pinkie St Peters Primary crafted the dynamic soundtrack music and added sound effects to make sure the audience are gripped or relaxed at all the right moments.

Each school business team had to present their work to another client school before the film could move to the next stage. These were anxious moments, as each team explained what they had created, and how it fitted the brief, but all teams were hugely supportive of each other. These were also fun days as the Primary School pupils mixed with pupils whom they will meet at Musselburgh Grammar School next year.

The multi-school film has been managed by East Lothian Council’s Arts Service. Lesley Smith, Team Manager Arts said “the Movie Making Apprentices project used film as the focus to support young people in a creative learning environment. I am looking forward to seeing the new movie at a special screening at The Brunton“. The project was facilitated by D fie foe, a creative film production company, with David Trouton a local music specialist.
