On Saturday 1st of December, 13 of the film-makers from P4B went to the Scottish Youth Film Festival in Kelvinhall, Glasgow. The film made by the whole class last year, ‘Bad Jack and the Beanstalk’ was nominated in the Best Animation Under-12 category. Although they just missed out on the award, it was a fantastic achievement to be nominated at all, with over 100 entries from across the country. They took part in film workshops, learning about animation from a former Disney animator, story development from a scriptwriter/director, camerawork from camera operators and had some horrid zombie make-up done by a professional make-up artist! Check out some photos from the day below (Warning: some photos are a bit gruesome, don’t worry, it’s not real!). Thanks to all of the parent helpers who joined us on the day. I’m sure they share my pride in the film-maker’s huge achievement in being nominated, as well as the way they represented our school on the day.
