Both first and second year A level Film Studies students had the opportunity to step in front of the camera when they became “extras” at a feature film shoot.
The title of the film is a closely guarded secret and students had to commit to a non-disclosure agreement with the film producers. This meant no mobiles on set and an agreement not to distribute material through social media.
The film, a psychological thriller based around an enigmatic relationship, will be released in UK cinemas in 2019. Students spent the day at the KCOM stadium, the location of a flashback sequence, shooting the days rushes.
Harvi Kaur, A Level Film Studies teacher, coordinated the opportunity and said, “Taking part in a real film shoot enabled students to experience the technical process and the scale of production required to create a feature film.”
Film Studies at Wyke is one of a family of courses that supports creative students. These include Media Studies, Creative Digital Media, Photography, Graphic Design and Performing Arts. Applications are now open for 2019 and interviews are currently beginning scheduled. To avoid disappointed, we recommend that students apply by February 2019.
