Collyer’s students focus on “e-PD” Film

Collyer’s media and film students are creating a short promotional film covering the successful West Sussex e-Learning Conference. Working to a professional brief, Students Jack Newnham, Thea Milford, Vicky Gough and Simone Trathen-Harris are involved in the project.

“e-PD” is a school-led not for profit organisation based in Horsham. Since 2011, it has developed into a vibrant hub of 210 subscribing schools in West and East Sussex with 6,000 registered users. e-PD enables schools to share skills, expertise, training and good practice, offering great professional development for all school staff and the opportunity for schools to raise some revenue in these challenging financial times. Gill Welch from e-PD said: “We were delighted to work with The College of Richard Collyer at the West Sussex e-Learning Conference, because collaboration is what e-PD is all about.”

Jonathan Nunns, Subject Leader for Media Studies, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Gill and the brilliant team at e-PD”
Gill was particularly impressed with the students’ professionalism: “At the event, the students were a credit to themselves and the college in the way that they approached the task. They were well organised, and demonstrated great teamwork.
“The video clip that we have seen so far looks great and meets our brief – it reflects very well what a great day it was, and we are looking forward to being able to upload the final version to our website when it is finished next term.”
Mark Ramey, Subject Leader for Film Studies, said: “These students are amazingly committed and creative. A credit to Collyer’s!”

Collyer’s Assistant Principal Dan Lodge was impressed: “We have a very strong Faculty for Arts and Communication and this worthy professional project is another example of the wonderful work that has been going on for a number of years in the media and film department. Massive thanks to e-PD, and our brilliant students and teachers!”
