Mermaids are Real

This is a film made by some my students as their final creative project in Film Studies.

I am very proud of them and think it ranks as one of the best student films to come out of the school where I teach.


Closed Doors (by Conor Ponsford)

Here is the film we made in class based on the short script I posted a few days ago.

Just an exercise to in order to get everyone comfortable using some of our equipment and to give them a chance to work together. 

Impressed with everyone but especially Conor for taking on the editing and teaching himself Final Cut Pro in the process.
