Junior Campus Virtual Film Festival

For two weeks students at the Junior Campus had the challenge of creating a film for our Virtual Film Festival. The genre of film was open for students to create any style of film they would like and they had to coerce their siblings and parents and anyone who was at home with them to become actors and camera operators, costume makers and stunt doubles, music composers and special effects artists. Over 130 films were created, more than 300 people were involved and the creativity and innovation of our students was off the charts.

The Challenge

Specialist teachers were looking for a way to celebrate the last weeks of our Virtual Classroom, so a group of teachers from specialist subject areas collaborated from apartments around Ho Chi Minh to create the first ever BIS Virtual Film Festival. 

Students were set the challenge of creating a 2 minute film over a 2 week period and they were provided with a website created by teachers that had every resource that they would need to make it happen. Within the website there were tutorials of how to film stunts, create digital special effects, compose music, create sound effects, costumes, disguises, dubbing over voices and much more.

As the two weeks neared its completion,  digital video files began to be submitted and the quality, innovation and creativity was beyond all predictions. Families had worked together to make films, students had painstakingly created perfect animations or coded their movie instead of using actors. Over 130 films were submitted and we estimate over 300 students, parents, grandparents, friends and pets joined in the process!

The Virtual Film Festival is one of the most amazing projects that I have seen in over 20 years as a teacher and if you consider that it was all done remotely, through Seesaw and other technology, it makes it even more special. Mr Luke Dyer, STEAM Coordinator & Primary ICT Leader

The Virtual Film Festival is one of the most amazing projects that I have seen in over 20 years as a teacher and if you consider that it was all done remotely, through Seesaw and other technology, it makes it even more special. 

Since the videos were uploaded to an  unlisted YouTube channel they have been viewed more than 4.6  thousand times and that equates to 72 hours spent watching these films. If you follow the link you will be taken to a selection of films created by our students and we hope you enjoy them as much as we did. I have a feeling that  this will not be the only BIS Film Festival, but hopefully next year it will not be virtual and maybe next year it may be a celebration to rival the oscars?
