Young Filmmakers Inspired

13th May 2009

Al-Hidayah students from years six and seven recently participated in the Panasonic Kids Witness News (KWN) Inspiration Session held at the Subiaco Arts Centre.

Twenty students from Al-Hidayah attended the special training workshops to learn from industry professionals how to produce a winning short-film entry for 2009.

Jack McCoy, one of Australia's best known surf film-makers, provided creative advice for students. Shane McLachlan, a Director and Editor with 30 years experience offered students technical advice, while Producer, Sarah Garnett gave some project management tips.

The Inspiration Sessions help develop skills required to create a well-produced film and introduced students to new ideas and technologies.

School Principal, Abdullah Khan said that "This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to attend a workshop sponsored by Panasonic, where attendees went away with invaluable tips on how to make a great short film."

The KWN program integrates subjects such as English, Computer Studies, and Social Science ensuring the program satisfies education requirements.

Attending teachers were given worksheets after the sessions that will help them manage the production of their students’ films this year.

KWN is a national short film program which encourages students to think more deeply, explore their creativity and develop communication skills through the use of technology.

Students all around Australia will direct, shoot and star in a five minute video, involving all aspects of filmmaking including determining the subject matter, scriptwriting, filming and editing.

Al-Hidayah was the "WA Primary School Winner" for 2008 in the prestigious New Vision Awards. The school’s short film entry was titled, “A Day in the Life of a Muslim Student”. Click the link below to watch the video.
