Previous Education Projects
Film Nation: Shorts
Film Nation: Shorts was a competition that invited young people (aged 14-25) to make, and vote for, films celebrating the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Towards the end 2012, City Eye was involved in delivering 4 film projects across the region, as part of Film Nation: Shorts. Each project produced a film that was uploaded onto the Film Nation website and entered into a national filmmaking competition.
In July 2012, Antony Batchelor, our Education Manager, students and staff from St Vincent College in Gosport travelled to London to attend the glitzy Film Nation: Shorts awards ceremony at the BFI.
The team, whose film Life with Two Sugars (above) had won the prize for Film of the Month for February, were nominated for the prestigious Best Film of the Month award for 2012.
There were 8 films (whittled down from over 400) in this hotly contested category and with stars galore handing out prizes it was definitely an occasion to remembered and one for the album!
Sam and Beth's Robot Adventure
Sam and Beth's Robot Adventure was part of a bigger project to introduce new art forms into St Mark's Junior School.
It was written by a City Eye filmmaker and a teacher and was based around a topic that the class was studying at the time - robots!
The film was created to showcase the different possible ways a film could be made.
The film uses real life drama, animation and green screen and combines them all together to create a wonderful fantasy world.
The young people were responsible for shooting and animating the film over two days. A City Eye filmmaker edited the film together at a later date.
