Cwmrhydyceirw School Into Film Club go into TV

Last October, we had the pleasure of receiving a visit from Cwmrhydyceirw Primary School’s Into Film Cymru film club, and what an absolute treat they were.

A jam-packed fun filled day was on the agenda, starting with a green screen training workshop with University of South Wales.  They got to learn about the history of CGI and how it is used in film and they even got to do a bit of acting!

With the 22 eager students raring to go, up next was a visit to various departments which saw the children learn more about costumes, art and props, and also gave them the opportunity to ask our heads of departments any burning questions they might have had.

And the fun didn’t end there. A behind the scenes studio tour allowed the pupils to feast their eyes on the incredible sets from the upcoming BBC fantasy drama, ‘His Dark Materials’, as well as giving them an insight in to the day to day running of a film studio.

With two pupils crowned our ‘Learners of the Day’ and over a hundred questions answered, it was time for us to wave farewell to our little pack of wolves. Please come back soon, Cwmrhydyceirw!
