Film Studies

GCSE (WJEC)

In Film Studies students will study films made in Hollywood (concentrating on the Super Hero genre, but looking at other genres as well) and films made outside Hollywood, in countries such as South Africa, New Zealand, England and Australia.

Genre work will assess knowledge and understanding of film language and key industry and audience issues. Students will look closely at the way films are made, all the way from the first idea for a film to the global premiere of the finished product! Students will also make their own short film.
