SOME TOP TIPS FROM PREVIOUS JURIES! • Be creative! You can animate, film a drama or documentary, you can even film a trailer! • You can blend genre and style in order to tell the story • Your school can submit more than one film – if so, try t submit a range of styles/genres • Let the children lead and make creative decisions – it should be their work • Think about the group size and everyone’s role • Plan your shoot as well as location – keep it simple and manageable • Remember that your film does not have to be 5 minutes long • Think about what your film will look like on the big screen – camera movement is important • Also be mindful of sound – make sure dialogue is clear, no extraneous sound, copyright free music (Creative Commons on Youtube or Soundcloud, Mobygratis. com)
