Screen Your Story Film Festival

4th Oct 2018

Screen Your Story Film Festival

After Rafe Honey-Davies (Year 6) won his category in Screen Your Story’s short story competition in the Summer Term, Wandsworth Prep was excited to take up the challenge of winning his prize – turning his story 'The Red Rocket', into a dance and short film.

In July, the children in Upper School were visited by professionals in the film industry where they learnt about careers in Dance, Sound, Lighting, Photography, Art Direction, Directing and Film Editing. All the children chose an area of interest to follow. 

The professional choreographer, Winston, put our dancing children through their paces and after four sessions they were ready for a filming day. Filming at the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes, Director John Gorrie shot the dance piece whilst children in the production team learnt on the job. Year 6 children then visited an editing suite in London and the film was complete. 

Last week, at a Gala Night held at the OSO in Barnes, Wandsworth Prep was delighted to be judged by award-winning directors and actors and awarded the prize of ‘Best Performers’ for our film, ‘The Red Rocket’.   

Congratulations to the teamwork of Upper School and our thanks go to all of the professionals, especially producer Anne Mullins, for making it all possible.

At Wandsworth Prep, we want to offer our children as many different opportunities as possible and who knows, perhaps this experience will inspire one of our children to become the next dancer, photographer, director or producer of the future…
