Use the speech and thought bubble templates with film stills to encourage members to analyse and interpret a character's appearance, body language and speech. Recreate scenes from the films that you watch and decode meaning by adding in speech and thoughts for the characters. Use this resource to support active film watching and as a basis for further work such as scriptwriting, filmed/written diary writing and creating characters for members' filmmaking projects.
