Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club
In support of the forthcoming Juniper Book Awards (18 March) several members of Into Film delivered an animation workshop to five schools in Chelmsford, Essex.
The Award is designed to encourage young people to read more - pupils from participating schools are invited to read the 6 shortlisted books and judge which they consider the best. Into Film have been partnering with Juniper Education for a number of years to help add a cinematic element to the project, and our animation workshop encouraged and enabled the young people to produce their own animated trailers to describe scenes from one of the shortlisted books.
Schools from Key Stage 2 and 3 from across Essex, Hertfordshire, Suffolk, Southend and Thurrock took part, and our workshop involved a brief talk about the history of animation as well as a showcase of some archive film to help spark ideas and an instructive animation tutorial to help them with their films. Organising students into their own production team - be it storyboarders, directors, or camera operators - each school had an hour to piece together the beginnings of their animated shorts.
Into Film will be judging the finished trailers, with the winner being announced at the Juniper Book Awards ceremony, and we'll be presenting the winning film on our website shortly afterwards.
