The Clip Club

Primary after-school club in East London, UK – we watch, talk about, shoot and edit short films and clips

Session 2 – Scary Movie editing 1

We miss a week but our Year 5 & 6 film makers turn up for the after school session as arranged 2 weeks ago. To recap on the first week we discuss camera shots and their effects … (see Session 1 post).  The crew take charge of the keyboard and stop and start the Wall-E clip when they have something to say about the shot. It’s great how much they remember and they come up with sophisticated observations. We talk about foreground and background, shaky camera movement, light and colour, contrast, tone and mood of the clip and how it makes you feel.

We watch the footage they shot a couple of weeks ago around the school and I show them the basics of iMovie by roughly piecing together a quick edit of a scary movie from their footage, adding sound effects. In 3 groups they go off to make their own. Not a bad amount covered in a 55 minute session. Well done guys!

With your knowledge of shots, why not pick one or two of the following stills from Wall-E and tell me about the shot?
