Film Making workshops and school incursions

It has never been a more exciting time to be a child with so much technology at their finger tips. They love to use video and animation both in the classroom and at home, creating their own short films and telling their own stories. At Rock Paper Video we are passionate about engaging students in film making and animation with our workshops and incursions, and supporting teachers with professional development and resources. We make it easy to use film making in the classroom and video technology across the curriculum, and turn screen time into a learning experience. .

Film Making and Animation Workshops

We love to inspire children to create their own videos and animations, giving them the skills to make their own short films, teaching professional techniques in an entertaining way that even beginners can use. This is the reason we exist, to put the power of film making in their hands.

Integrate Video & Animation into your Classroom

Students are embracing video technology in and out of the classroom, creating and producing their own short films and animations. Film making is a great way to engage your students in the curriculum, present school projects and teach them concepts in new and novel ways, reinforcing classroom learning.

Incursions Aligned with the School Curriculum

We align our school incursions and film making resources with the Australian school curriculum to meet the needs of Primary and Secondary School students and teachers, and maximise the learning potential of film making, video and animation within the school context.
