See It Make It

In three sessions, we asked pupils in schools in Swansea to make 3 minute movies using iPads. Considering the importance of moving image in all forms of broadcast from cinema to YouTube, the children combined sound design, image and text, to generate short films which used the language of film-making to express their personal stories.

Using references from early 20th century cinema, early horror films, surrealism, contemporary animation, comics and gaming culture, these future media and film students are gaining the skills to join a new wave of cross-platform media producers, making content for social media and broadcasters.
