Get Into Filmmaking: Six Sessions from Story to Screen is a programme of filmmaking guidance, aimed at both Into Film Club leaders and members. It aims to simplify filmmaking, enhance the development of filmmaking skills and give a clear structure on how to make a film in half a term. As the name suggests there are six individual sessions, each based around a key question, which are accessible to young people of all age ranges.

Get Into Filmmaking: Six Sessions from Story to Screen is designed to guide Into Film Club leaders and members through pre-production activities such as scriptwriting and storyboarding, to film production itself, including camera shots, lighting and sound effects, to postproduction, editing and next steps such as entering the finished films into the Film of the Month competition and the Into Film Awards.

Ceir adnoddau Cymraeg yma hefyd / Welsh Language versions are also availalbe.

Each week is based around a specific key question, focusing members on developing both their filmmaking and life skills such as teamwork, communication or problem solving:
Week 1 What makes a successful film?
Week 2 How can we plan a film?
Week 3 What do we need to do before we start filming?
Week 4 How do we shoot a film?
Week 5 Can editing improve our film?
Week 6 How can we showcase, share and celebrate our film?

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
