Second Screen it Award for St Anthony’s

St Anthony's studentsLast month the filmmaking group from St Anthony’s School, Noble Park, were presented with their Junior Live Action (Foundation to Year 4) Screen It Award at an award ceremony at ACMI.

The team from St Anthony’s won the award for their short film Back in My Day… (watch the film below) which the judges called ‘hilarious’ for its depiction of ‘a grandad talking to a granddaughter about how hard it was back in his time.’

The students described the filmmaking process:

We used green screens and special effects to make it look cool. 

When we edited it, it was good but very frustrating ‘cos it took a lot of time but at the end it looked very nice. 

Attending the award ceremony and walking the red carpet was also an emotional experience:

Walking the red carpet – it was really cool and I felt really special. 

I didn’t feel really embarrassed but a teensy bit and I felt proud of myself. 

As well as their award winning film, the team at St Anthony’s also collaborated with students from Springvale Park Special Development School to make another entry.

A Springvale Park student said: Well I was working with Roy behind the cameras and he was a great help, he was teaching me how to use all of the technology. 

Roy responded: I would really like to make another film because it was really fun working with them. 

St Anthony’s award made the news on ABC Me’s News to Me progam (story begins at 1.36 minutes).
