Students Produce Sci-Fi Zombie Film in Collaboration with Cornwall College

Year 11 Film Studies students recently embarked on an incredible film-making journey, taking on all the roles involved in creating a sci-fi zombie film over a five-hour period.

The dedicated students tackled every aspect of production, from writing the script and sound engineering to acting and directing. To further enhance the experience, Cornwall College generously provided props, equipment, and invaluable expertise.

This collaboration highlights the burgeoning film industry in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, which has seen significant national recognition and local growth, boasting over 270 companies across film, television, video production, equipment hire, and digital games. Partnering with Cornwall College provides Liskeard students with an immersive and insightful look into this thriving employment sector on their doorstep.

Industry experts impressed by student talent:

Rob Shirley, Lecturer at Cornwall College, commended the Liskeard students, stating, "The Liskeard students were amazing, and we were blown away by their participation, ideas, and behaviour."

Frances Hydes, Careers Lead at Liskeard School, echoed this sentiment: "We are always looking for innovative ways to support our students in exploring future careers and education, and this is best achieved through collaboration with industry experts. Our students were exceptional; it was wonderful to see their confidence flourish throughout the day. We definitely have some future Greta Gerwigs and Christopher Nolans in our midst!"

Mrs Archer, Head of Media at Liskeard School, expressed her pride in the students' achievements: "I'm so proud of all the Year 11 Film Studies Students who took part in Friday's events. They were amazing! It was a joy to see them come to life while taking on each role of the film-making crew."

This project serves as a testament to the dedication and talent of Liskeard School's Film Studies students, and the school's commitment to providing them with practical, industry-standard experiences.
