As part of their Year 11 GCSE project exploring Shakespeare and the Literary Heritage, Mr Waugh’s class created, in conjunction with the Royal Shakespeare Company, The CLC and the British Film Institute, a short film based on an extract from the play Titus Andronicus. You can look at the lesson sequence on the Year 11 Class Site.
Produced by a group of students from the London Nautical school who are participating in a film-making programme established by the Cinémathèque Française in Paris called ‘Le Cinéma, cent ans de jeunesse’ (Cinema, 100 years young)
This film was conceived, written, performed, filmed and edited by students. There were adults around, we filled out the forms, kept the batteries charged, mediated the conversations and did the boring post production.
The film premiered in Paris on The 7th of June.

These students are participating in a film-making programme established by the Cinémathèque Française in Paris called ‘Le Cinéma, cent ans de jeunesse’ (Cinema, 100 years young). These excerpts are samples of the “Film Exercises” the students complete as part of their investigation into a particular aspect of film theory. The boys also watch a wide range of films and clips as part of the process of building up to their “Final Film Essai” which is a short film that they take to the international festival held in Paris (Here is the film Essai from 2012)
This year the focus is on the Mis en Scene, so the excerpts you will see on Edutronic TV will all centre around the impact of the setting on the situation, and the effect of various changes in camera angle and position.
The students of a London Nautical School Year 7 English class spent much of the year working independenty on their “Reading Passports”. This is a film of excerpts from the presentations they devised based on thoughts that arose from this wide reading programme.
