As part of the Creative Media Production & Technology UAL Extended Diploma - Level 3 course, students have been working on a number of short assignments to create short films following a creative brief. The latest brief was to create a film trailer with the theme of Halloween. The film trailer needed to demonstrate an understanding and ability to produce work that conformed to the conventions of the genre. Four of the best short films were selected and uploaded to social media. The assignment was the group's second film project completed since the start of the academic year and they have also been showcased around the College on plasma screens.
The trailers are described as eerie and horrific with props to make them look chilling and sinister - lots of creativity, thought and planning has been put into the filming.Students filmed at locations in the local area. Year 2 students were involved in acting and were also encouraged to film at home to experiment with low light conditions during any planned night shooting.
One group of reviewers said: “We think that they could well be the scariest horror movies ever made!” Check them out and subscribe to our channel at youtube.com/souththamescoll. A brief desctiption of each storyline follows: ‘Vanish’ – Young women are disappearing and a serial killer is on the loose, ‘Lunacy’ - A creepy hooded man is prowling around with a nailed baseball bat looking for his victim Jeremy, ‘Luke Vivet’ – A disturbing evil entity is after Luke, and finally ‘Condemned’ – A psycho clown is lurking on the streets and he is out to cause harm to a rival gang.
Performing Arts students recently performed a “flash mob” at our Wandsworth campus and in the local Southside Wandworth shopping centre.
Students and shoppers stopped in delight to watch our talented students use a wide variety of well-choreographed dance moves to the song “Say Hey (I Love You)” that brought a smile to everyone’s faces with many of them clapping and cheering at the end. From this, students gained invaluable experience that will help to build confidence, work as a team and increase their ability to take part in a live show.
You can see more photos and watch a short video of the performance over at our Instagram page along with other content from around our College. Feel free to follow us on there to keep up to date on other things happening here too!
Our Level 2 and Level 3 Sports students attended a workshop on careers in Sport and employability skills at Fulham Football Club’s ground, Craven Cottage. Jim Hart, Fulham FC Employability Coach, delivered the workshop.
The focus during the workshop was on career pathways and roles in Sport, developing personal and social skills and the employability skills and attributes that employers such as Fulham FC look for from their staff. This employer collaboration offers a great opportunity to learners and is a valued partnership for the College.
South Thames College’s Employability and Work Experience team have worked closely with employers to develop a series of Employer Inspirational Talks for students across a variety of curriculum areas, throughout the academic year. This will see employers give overviews on career opportunities in their sector and their expectations as employers.
Our Level 2 and Level 3 Sports students enjoyed being put through their paces in a taster session delivered by Citycise, a fitness club formed by professional athletes. The session was run by ex-professional rugby player Netani Talei with the help of ex-fitness model Natasha Murray and ex-professional rugby player John Wilson. The learners went through a series of physical and mental challenges, which they took in their stride and rose to the challenge.
Pink is associated with qualities such as kindness, compassion and softness – attributes which is strongly associated with femininity. Today, this colour represents the expression of moral support for women with Breast Cancer.
Unfortunately, Breast Cancer affects millions of women worldwide and it is important women are aware that guidance and support is out there to reduce the risk of disease. It is also important to be mindful that men can also develop Breast Cancer, which is rare but at the same time information and aid is available.
