Wildlife films on the big screen

WILDLIFE films with a difference were created by Clevedon children before being shown on the town’s silver screen.

The children at All Saints’ Primary School were asked to invent five wildlife creatures before filming short documentaries about each one.

The pupils in years three and four made the costumes and props for each film. They were also visited by a BBC wildlife photographer who told them about her film work and also learnt about creating story boards with Lyndsay Davies from The Curzon Community Cinema, who also helped the children to film their documentaries.

The Wild Things project culminated in a premiere event at the Clevedon cinema, when the children, family members and teachers had the chance to see their creations on the big screen.
