CHOOSE THE PROGRAMME
THAT BEST SUITS YOU
Our service comes in three parts, and your school
can decide which combination best suits you.
Let’s Make a Film Programme
Any combination is designed to ensure that you succeed in shooting
a completed film that you and your students will be happy with.
THE LETS MAKE A FILM PROGRAMME
We provide a Step by Step Programme through our dedicated online learning portal that your teacher can deliver to your students as part of their Curriculum.
Our course consists of 12 Modules, each designed to teach a different aspect of filmmaking – from writing scripts and creating storyboards, to recording sound and shooting a film with a smart device.
Modules are designed to comply with key Learning Objectives within various strands of the Primary Curriculum
Facilitate the Shoot Day
Deliver the Course In Person / In Full
Provide Professional Equipment
MENTORSHIP & FACILITATION
Video Nation can provide skilled trainers to help your teachers and your students through any stage of the programme at whatever level you require, from being available to answer any queries or questions you might have, to fully facilitating the course for you.
These options are designed to ensure that students have completed all of the work prior to the Shoot Day, and that the Shoot itself is a success.
Our Editors will take the footage from your Shoot Day and edit it into a final professional film, ready to be shared with the world.
So no matter how the shoot goes, you are guaranteed to end up with a final film that you and your students can be proud of.
Because we know different schools have different needs and priorities, schools can choose one or a combination of these three services.
Katie Lowry (6th Class Teacher)
“My class thoroughly enjoyed this experience. From a teacher’s point of view, the weekly modules were super accessible with an appropriate activity which allowed groups to progress easily to the next stage of the project.
It let children experience all aspects of filmmaking while learning about the history of their locality.
Everybody had a job and responsibility which meant everybody was included. It also promoted independence in their learning which was a very valuable lesson.”
“I had a great time working on this film. It was a great way to learn about our local history in a fun and interactive way.”
“I had so much fun making our film. Liam included everyone and taught us a lot about what it is like to make a movie, and how important everyone’s job was, both in front of and behind the camera.”
“I really enjoyed making these films with my classmates. Liam and Robert were great help. It was great fun to learn about the history of Abbeyleix. I loved being a director and an actor.”
“It was a fascinating experience and I learned about how much work goes into making a movie.
It taught me about all of the jobs and responsibilities both on and off camera. I also learned more history about our town.
It was an exciting and educational experience that I’m not in a hurry to forget.”
“Video Nation gave me a great opportunity to learn about filmmaking, script writing, history and SPHE in a fun way. I really enjoyed it.”
