Movie Making Masterclass

2030 and Beyond


What could schooling, education and learning look like in 2030 and beyond?

Pupils from St Paul's RC High School in Glasgow and its feeder primary schools worked with Braw Talent to film their ideas for the future. The film is based on a scenario of future education developed by the Goodison Group in Scotland and Scotland's Futures Forum as part of their project on schooling, education and learning in 2030 and beyond.

Based on a report by Scotland's Futures Forum & The Goodison Group in Scotland (2019). Filmmaking programme designed and delivered by Braw Talent. Commissioned by The Scottish Parliament.

4 x full day sessions

Session 1

Pupils are introduced to the concept behind the project and begin to explore their own ideas to develop some scenarios, a script and storyboards

Session 2

Pupils choose their preferred team to specialise in (film crew, performance, art department) - learning about equipment, on set rules / etiquette and shooting.

Session 3

Facilitators allow pupils to take the lead on the shoot as they display their skills, knowledge and confidence on the final shoot day. They also participate in podcast and diary-room sessions to explore their own ideas of the future of education.

Session 4

All participating pupils spend the day at The Scottish Parliament where they make a presentation to politicians and change makers before the premiere screening of the completed film.

Team work is really important because the camera and sound crew need to work closely behind the scenes.
