Maths, Science, Drama, Literacy, Numeracy, Geography, Art, Technology, Media Studies, History, Ethics and more… We have used Film and Animation in virtually every curriculum area and with every year group from Nursery to Year 13.

  • We work in large urban schools, and small rural ones, across all phases and age groups
  • We help children realise their ideas, make their own decisions, and produce smart finished work
  • We work with teachers and other staff members to provide CPD which addresses particular whole-school or curriculum ideas, with a large on-the-job component
  • We also help schools become technically proficient and give advice on equipment and training needs
  • If you work in a Special School you may like to view FilmAble, our learning disability film company’s website

Children experience 3-D shapes though building them and discussing their construction. The process was filmed and the conversations and making were filmed and used to inform further teaching and learning.

These children are being filmed from two miles away as part of a storytelling project using the place names in the Northumberland landscape their school can see. Perhaps the biggest school view in England.

 

Bellingham Heritage Centre asked us to work with the local school to create a film about visiting the Centre. Special effects and historic objects combined in the children’s script (2014)
