The 3Cs (Colour, Camera, Character) and the 3Ss, (Story, Setting, Sound) can be used to help students discuss and analyse all the elements of a film text. Working with the 3Cs and 3Ss enables students to make connections between the features of all texts, and develop their decoding, encoding, reading and writing skills.
After viewing a film sequence, just roll the dice and ask your students one of the corresponding questions. Students can become skilled at leading this activity for themselves as a starter activity or plenary for film text analysis.

What our educators say

"The Filmmaking Guides have been invaluable in helping novice filmmakers, from ensuring their story is well told, to thinking about light, camera angles and editing."
