Every week students in the various OISE training centres work on particular projects to practice working in a group, in-depth research and also presentation skills.
This week the students in OISE Bristol took part in a exciting film based weekly project which produced some great results. A big thank you to the local production company Icon films for their help through out the week. Icon Films is an international production company that creates a broad range of factual content, from documentaries to factual entertainment. Some of their work includes the popular programs "Desert Seas", "Last Lions of India" and "River Monsters".
The students were lucky enough to be able to tour Icon’s Bristol studios, see a real life production being made in OISE Bristol and have a talk from one of Icon’s top directors, Cris Warren. Cris delivered an interesting and insightful talk to the students about life behind the camera; he shared his experiences and beliefs of the industry and inspired many of the participants and staff.
The weekly project culminated in some carefully planned and well-delivered student presentations on their film based experiences of the week. After such an insightful project, there may be a future director or two among the students, or if not at least a healthy interest in the world of film.
Well Done to OISE Bristol Students and Thank you to Icon Films!
