5 year 9 boys @MCMAcademy are working closely with Moria Kean and Captive North to create a film showing their views on the Manchester Riots which took place in August 2011. The boys have been researching stories from newspapers, television broadcasts and films already produced about the riots. They have enjoyed planning and scripting their film and yesterday got the opportunity to see their ideas come to life in the studio. They all got the chance to be actors and production crew.
The boys have one more session on Friday 30th March to edit the film. We are all very excited to see how their ideas have flourished into a profession film which will be shown on the BBC later in the year.
This project has been possible thanks to the Idea’s Foundation and Media Trust.
