Film’s Cool, the London-based mentoring initiative is holding a celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by screening the documentaries made by its students at the BFI Southbank on 13th June. Neil Crombie of Seneca Productions headed up the course – Change One Thing – which is aimed at introducing school children to documentary film-making.

The 10 week course gave North London students – aged 13-14 – the chance to learn various documentary making techniques including interviewing, development and exposition as well as a series of mentoring sessions with documentary directors and producers. By the end of the course they will each have produced a mini documentary on the subject of “one thing they would like to change.”

This is the second course to come out of London based mentoring initiative Film’s Cool, which was founded by Lost Tribe Productions CEO Hugh Spurling and teacher/author Oliver Rosen, with the aim of bringing movie-making into schools.

The first project, which ran in September 2011, called Film’s Cool First Class: Horror, gave a group of A-Level students the chance to produce and edit their own horror trailers and print-based campaigns, and to pitch their projects to industry experts and compete for work experience placements.

The trailers were premiered to industry professionals in January at Channel 4, including Film4’s new head of digital Anna Higgs, with seven awards being handed out at the event. 

The latest scheme started in February and finishes with a screening of the documentaries at the BFI Southbank.
