Film Industry Presentation

A life in the Film Industry

On Thursday 29th June the students of Tile House Mansion were joined by Gary Halliday a local film maker who has worked on a number of films, commercials and soap operas. Following the Year 8 WOW day last week, Gary taught us all about the roles in film and the diversity available. He helped the students to realise that there are plenty of opportunities to work in film that don’t mean you have to be the lead actor – from grippers to writers, costume to lighting, lawyers to catering and accountants to focus pullers! The students in the image all embodied different roles and appreciated the sheer scale of operations!
