Emmaus College year 12 students are the first cohort to take part in a new film and TV subject that contributes to their OP.
Head of E-learning Adrian Wilkinson said next year the class would be open to year 11 and 12 students.
“It’s brand new to our school this year,” he said.
“We would be hoping to get (a dedicated space) set up soon, have a live studio and a permanent green room.
Mr Wilkinson said the students have been learning about all parts of the film business such as project management, critiquing and how to do all areas.
“I wanted to give the students the a different avenue for OP subjects,” he said.
“They get this opportunity to use this really cool technology.
“The subject helps with their literacy in general and helps them have a more critical eye.”
Year 12 student Kayley Atkinson said she had to change subjects around to make sure she could do the class.
“This is what I want to do,” she said.
“I’m looking into a media degree for next year.
“You meet so many similar people here.”
Kayley said it was great to work with the green screen, learning to write pitches for executives and how to edit videos and writing.
“It’s a really fun subject and I think people who enjoy media and films like it,” she said.
The cohort are currently learning how to use green screen technology and will be looking to enter the one minute film competition later this year.
