Elstree Film Studios ran the Elstree Film Festival for the third year exclusively for local schools. Working collaboratively with Elstree University Technical College (UTC), the project offered resources, expertise and guidance from DRCM Ltd. The students made the films from scratch including scripting, producing, directing and acting.
We kicked off the week with a masterclass in script writing, character development and plot outline before the children split into their age appropriate film making teams in order to begin writing their scripts. Elstree UTC allowed pupils the run of its state-of-the-art building which provided a beautiful backdrop for the setting of all the films.
Students made five amazing films which you can see below with an added special sneak peak ‘behind the scenes’ video. The films are; ‘Frenemies’, ‘Gone’, ‘Murder by Midnight’, ‘The Missing Child’ and ‘Unsupervised.’
