CineClub

2009-2010 was a success in a number of ways for Coopers' Company and Coborn School. Following the launch AS Media Studies, CineClub was offered to year nine pupils as an after school club, focussed on the developed and production of short films. Grounded in the principle that through practical production and teamwork comes success, thirteen year nine students attended after school workshops for a total of ten weeks. The final product, a short film titled 'Secondary School Musical', was shown at the BFI/National Theatre. The film received rave reviews from the audience, and the CineClub executives found the finished product 'outstanding' for a first year school. CineClub is running this year for year nine students and will soon be offered to year ten students, with the objective of entering film competitions, developing film making skills and increasing interest in the Media Studies Department.
