KYSPAs Extended Schools Workshops


The second day of the summer film making workshop saw four groups move on to make a longer piece of film. The subject matter varied again, but a certain ammount of death & murder will no doubt be involved! (I let the groups choose what they film - nothing to do with me!).

Although Hannah was ill, and sadly unable to join us (hope you're feeling better now) Flo & Ruby both continued to help their respective groups with filming and advice - as well as lending their acting skills to support the plot!

Overall, this was a successful workshop which has left me with HOURS of editing to do (fun,fun,fun!) but once it's done we will be arranging to show the entire collection at a mini premiere where DVDs will be available.

The photos collected over the course of the two days will hopefully be enough evidence to secure at least two Youth Activity Leaders Awards for my hard-working helpers! Thanks to all of you for your hard work.


Filming in progress making use of the great weather we had to film outdoors.

We also managed to get some editing done on our new Imac!
