Film Studies

These activities give you a taste of the things you will study on the course when you join Priestley later this year.

1. Test your knowledge of film with our Kahoot quiz.

2. Look at the two film scenes below. One is from the musical genre and the other from the horror genre.
Think about what features of the camera work, sound, editing and mise-en-scene (such as costumes, props and make up) clearly convey the genre of the film.

3. Creative task – have a look at the guidance and create your own short film.

4. Click on the YouTube link to see films which have already been produced.

The resources below are here to help you with this session. The documents can be downloaded to your device and web links can be viewed online. 


What to do when you're finished ?

Keep a copy of your work safe until your first days at college. Bring it with you for your first lesson in this subject.
