Why filmmaking and animation for learning?

Shoot and Screen – think, plan, create, evaluate?

In this activity we’ll be using a filmmaking framework called Shoot and Screen which has four steps: think, plan, create and evaluate.

Think – The one-shot film?

We're going to examine pupil thinking skills and use our thinking skills to generate ideas for using film to maximise learning. We'll also look at film examples created for use in different areas of the curriculum.

Plan – The one-shot film?

In this activity, we will be planning our film and developing the skills we need to create it including learning about camera shots.

Evaluate – the one-shot film?

Screening and evaluating your one-shot film.


In this activity we'll extend our learning and understand how film can be used as a tool for assessment across the curriculum.

It will be nice to learn a more advanced level learning of cinematography/animation course to add even more depth to the speaking points that you have laid out from your foundation course, and tailored for intermediate and advanced level learners.

Great introduction to cinematography concepts. Straightforward to follow along and gave me some new insight in setting up better shots when I draw storyboards or comics.

The course went through a lot of explanation and also explain some of the key elements and terms used in creating a film.

Extremely motivational and made simple for anyone to grab the basics !
