Junior Magic Lantern presents….

…the Yellow Leaf award! Because we started the project in autumn when the leaves were turning and it’s a spin-off of the Palme d’Or, and …er…it seemed like a good idea at the time…

A group of children from Netheredge School made two short films: The Rocking Chair, and Stinky Sam, starting from simple storyboards and script improvisations.

The children decided amongst themselves who was going to act, direct, make the title sequences and operate the camera.

They also dressed the set and organised props, and (when we’d all stopped laughing) we showed the finished films on our full-size screen. Sadly we’re not able to show the films at the moment for safeguarding reasons….







….but here are some snaps of the work in progress, culminating in popcorn at the Premiere! This is all thanks to Kids Can Do funding from the South West Community Assembly and we are very grateful to them for making these sessions possible.
