Filming at Geevor Tin MinePosted on: 28/01/2020
As part of their GCSE in Film Studies, students at HDS are challenged with either making a film or writing a screenplay of their own. On the 28th January, thirteen intrepid Year 10 filmmakers ventured to Geever Tin Mine to make their very own film at this fantastic historical landmark!
After a few months of preparation (learning to pitch their ideas, produce detailed designs and storyboards, and use professional screenplay writing software) the team were ready to film on location.
The experience was an invaluable taste of a career in filmmaking and the students had an amazing day in the atmospheric mines shooting scenes for their movies. Thank you to the team at Geevor Tin Mine for being so welcoming; it was as if a Hollywood studio stage set had been built especially for us!
