Into Film Into Ashfield

Ashfield Girls’ High School Moving Image Arts pupils were recently involved in 2 days of filming with Into Film, London who invited the school to participate in a promotional film for the charity which will be screened later this year. Under the guidance of award winning director Jonathan Harris whose previous work includes creating commercials for Yves St Laurent and working as director Tomas Alfredson’s assistant on ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’, the year 12 pupils showcased films they have made, discussed how studying film has impacted on their lives and how making their own films has empowered them and given them a real sense of ownership of their work.

Cinematographer over the 2 days, John Craine, whose short films and documentaries have won awards world-wide, offered the pupils hands on advice about capturing the best shots when filming, whilst sound editor, Trevor Moore, demonstrated the art of recording the best quality sound when filming.

The team also filmed a group of A level English students who discussed how the viewing of the film ‘Suffragette’ has helped them in their study of the drama of social realism in Ibsen’s ‘A Doll’s House’.
