Encourage your children to respond to their favourite films in writing and pictures
Young people are often enthuasistic about film, and there is great value in encouraging them to respond in writing or pictures to a subject that can wring persuasive opinions even from the most reticent of children – especially reluctant boys.
Key Stage 1 – creating a film poster
Since the 1960s, the trend has been for film posters to comprise montages of still images drawn from the film itself. However, in the golden age of cinema, studios had artists churning out posters as on a production line. Their efforts were unsigned and cinemas were expected to return them for destruction following a film’s screening – but now these posters can raise enormous prices at auctions.
