Media Studies Trip July 2023 3

From Luffa to Hogwarts… - posted 14th July

The annual Film Studies and Media Studies department trip to the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour in July was another resounding success. Our Year 10 Media and Year 12 Film & Media students had the chance to experience an interactive “Script to Screen” workshop in which they learned about the process of bringing a story to the big screen via writing, producing, shooting, special effects, set design and make up. Students had the chance to see genuine models, prosthetics and props from the Harry Potter films. Afterwards, we walked through the real sets and workspaces from the franchise. Students saw just how many thousands of people, skills and jobs it takes to make a film and we believe that this trip has made our learners realise that their hobbies, interests, talents and obsessions can transfer seamlessly into our country’s hugely profitable and successful film and creative industries.

Students created a design and then learned different techniques of clay construction to build their artwork which they will be finishing off with paint next week. They were all very creative and had a fantastic day experimenting in the art department.
