Luffa. Tarantino. Hitchcock.

Our Year 12 and 13 Film Studies students got a fantastic, additional insight into two of their set exam texts and their directors during an exclusive seminar at New Park Cinema. This year’s film exam texts include Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Hitchcock’s Vertigo and students were given insights to the directors’ lives, careers and seminal films through clips and extensive research. Reviews from the Film Studies classes are in:

Anna Gehr (12Otter) - "The lecture at New Park greatly developed my knowledge on The Auteur Theory. By walking through the films of Hitchcock and Tarantino I was able to notice certain patterns carried throughout their works, and learned of their particular techniques and aesthetics. I found it particularly interesting that Hitchcock made over fifty films while Tarantino has a small collection of nine, but they all carry their signature and can both be considered auteurs - no matter how different their careers. This opportunity has prepared our film studies class nicely for our study of the theory next year. I have a new respect for these films and their filmmakers, the New Park talk has changed how I will approach our Auteur unit entirely."

James Hume (12Ridgeway) - "I really enjoyed attending the visit to the New Park Cinema as it gave an amazing insight into the world of Quentin Tarintino and how he made his films. It was also fascinating to discover more about the classic filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock and films such as Vertigo, Rear Window and The Birds."

Grace Livings (12Otter) - "The Film Studies trip to New Park Cinema trip was really useful, as we got a deeper insight to the way Alfred Hitchcock and Quentin Tarantino direct and construct a few of their most famous movies. Clips were shown from various of each director's movies to give us a broader understanding of their filming traits and styles. The trip really gave me more context on the directors that I didn't know before."

Morgan Glew (13Sherborne) - "New Park cinema was a great experience - my first time being there; the experience has made me want to come back. It gave more of a meaning to cinema and made the experience much more enjoyable."

We would like to thank Walter Francisco and the staff at New Park for providing us with yet another bespoke film education experience, especially Patrick Hargood for his wonderful presentations.
