At BIAFF 2012 Buchlyvie Primary School won a 4 Star Award and the AKM Music prize with Hedgerow Tales.
The film is about a group of friends, a bird, a mouse, holly leaf and a family of hedgehogs, sitting round a campfire telling stories about their lives.
The film was made by forty children aged between 7-11 with the support of an animator, editor and sound-recordist. The role of the film makers was to help the children express and technically achieve their ideas, not to make the film for them! The children worked together for two weeks, in small groups, with everyone contributing ideas, making and animating artwork and creating the sound track.
|Young people have great imagination and are willing to have a go and experiment. Everyone gets involved: contributing ideas for the story, drawing up the storyboard, making and animating art work and creating the sound track. The children get a great sense of achievement presenting their film to the school, families and friends. When the film goes off to festivals and wins prizes, that's the icing on the cake!|
