1000 Londoners Film Project

“….learning to use the newest equipment – the DSLR and Final Cut Pro – really built my confidence and this experience is brilliant for my CV and personal statement …”

“This work experience has really prepared me for dealing with new challenges and overcoming them as a team; meeting our goal of creating and delivering the first edit of our film”

“It was so helpful to get a feel for what it is like to shoot and edit a film, which is really great as film is what I want to do”

Year 12 Films Premiere at the Odeon

Wimbledon Bookfest and the Wimbledon Foundation enabled Year 12 students to work with professional filmmakers at Chocolate Films to make documentary films as part of the Take 10 part of the 1000 Londoners project. These films premiered at the Wimbledon Odeon in October.  Students made two films one about Sister Una McCreesh OSU, Ursuline Sister and previous Headteacher here at the Ursuline and the other about Polly Billington, Ursuline Alumnae and CEO of UK100 This is a highly ambitious network of local government leaders, who work to achieve clean air and clean energy in our cities. Thank you so much to Fiona Razvi at Wimbledon Bookfest and the Wimbledon Foundation for making this happen.
