BIGFOOT WALES ;DCF FILM MAKING & ANIMATION

This Summer term, Bigfoot Wales is delighted to offer schools a range of programmes to help bring creativity back into schools. The Expressive Arts is an integral part of the Curriculum for Wales and we are offering a wide variety of programmes that can help meet the requirements of the new curriculum.

We are offering a range of workshops that can support schools with the implementation of the Digital Competence Framework (DCF). Our workshops have a proven track record in engaging all pupils in the class and improving a breadth of skills across the curriculum, including collaboration, speaking and listening, and writing.

Programmes include:

YEAR 6 LEAVERS FILM (£425 & VAT)

“I’ve just watched it, it’s amazing! Everyone will be thrilled with it, thank you so much for everything. The film has gone down a storm!! Everyone is chuffed to bits with it.” Cwmbach CIW Primary School

During the Summer term we are offering Year 6 pupils the opportunity to create a film based around their memories of primary school. The film would be perfect for a leavers assembly and make a wonderful gift for pupils to take away with them at the end of term.

Costs include a day of filming as well as a final edited film. A link of the film will be provided to the school, which can be securely shared to parents and guardians.

ANIMATION WORKSHOPS: FPH AND KS2 (£325 & VAT)

Animation is a fantastic tool for reinforcing curriculum topics or to bring to life stories and poetry. Working in small groups, pupils will have the opportunity to create models with plasticene or Lego or choose to animate any other objects from their favourite toys to their school bags and lunchboxes.

Each group are introduced to the simple process of animation using a laptop and a webcam, before they build their own little studios, with backdrop and models, and let their imaginations run free, as they develop Storytelling, ICT, Art, Music and Oracy skills.

FILM MAKING- EDITED FILM: KS2 (£425 & VAT)

Schools can book an experienced film maker to turn groups of children into young filmmakers as they produce a film based around any theme, book or topic that the class are working on. In the past, schools have used films as part of a heritage project or to produce a film about the school for parents.

Past topics have also included: Transition, Anti bullying, Our School, WW2, Caring for Our World, School Stories. We can also include Green Screen special effects giving pupils and staff the opportunity to learn how to use this skill to enhance their digital productions.

FILMING OF SCHOOL CONCERTS AND YEAR 6 LEAVERS ASSEMBLIES

We can also film school concerts, edit the show and provide the school with a link to share with parents and guardians.

Costs:

£250 & VAT: Full day’s filming and editing of the show. 

£175 & VAT: Half a day’s filming and editing of the show.
