FILM & MEDIA LESSONS
COSTUME CHARACTERISATION – KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5
Students will have the opportunity to look at original mood boards and costumes which will give them an insight into how there is never a costume without character and history.
SCRIPT TO SCREEN – KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5
Students will have the opportunity to look at the journey of a film production from the script to what is seen on the big screen. They will study the processes used, focusing on artwork, plans, white card models, storyboards and the finished sets used in the Harry Potter film series.
CAMERA CHOICES – KS4, KS5
Students will have the opportunity to examine film sequences, with the intention of developing their understanding of how a Director communicates atmosphere, meaning and narrative.
STORYBOARDING – KS4, KS5
Students will learn about the important role storyboards play in the process of filmmaking. They will learn how departments work together, thinking about how camera and actor positioning helps to tell the story of the film. As a group, students will create their own concept for a film and begin to storyboard a scene from the film.
MISE-EN-SCÈNE – KS4, KS5
Students will discover the true meaning of mise-en-scène and how nothing inside the film frame is an accident. Using authentic props and costumes from the Harry Potter films as examples, students will learn how the various elements of mise-en-scène impact an audience. Students will discuss and develop their own idea for a film scene, justifying the mise-en-scène elements that will make up their chosen scene.
