Module: Script to Screen
Brief : To produce a 10 minute film with any chosen subject/story.
The production had to be planned out with scripts, storyboards, location searching, health & safety forms, cast list, prop list & much more. The group also had to pitch their idea to relevant tutors & an Eastenders story writer before production started.
Topic: The story line is based on a true event that happened whilst in University. A boy comes home drunk, thinks he can climb & break into his house because he has forgot his key but falls to his death. We wanted to get the message out to students â€“ DRINK SAFELY, do not get so dunk that you may harm yourself.
Review: Altogether the video was an extreme success, it received outstanding first marks (along with the planning report/scripts etc). When previewed, some audience members did shed a tear due to the dynamic storyline. The film sent a strong message out to students.
