Film making sessions

YOUNGSTERS interested in film making can take part in a series of masterclasses as part of the run up to the 2012 Cambridgeshire Young People’s Film Festival this summer.

The sessions will be held in three schools and led by industry professionals who will show and involve children in activities and explain the essential skills needed in film making.

This includes a model making session on March 7 March at Burrowmoor Primary, in March.

Cllr David Brown, Cambs County Council Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back a Storyboard Artist and Modelmaker from the Aardman Studios, famous for making Wallace and Grommit, as well as a composer and performer from Seldom Scene who is currently working at the Tate, London.

“The festival provides the focus and inspiration to encourage children to produce films. Work in this area really engages young people and contributes considerably to their overall literacy development.”
