In Sept 2015, our award winning Animation Club was re-branded as Movie Makers Club , as we shifted our focus from Animation to the wider world of movie making. New students had the opportunities to write, act, direct and edit their own movies, although we still retained our animation background to ensure our movies have amazing special effects!
We are proud to release 2 new films from the Coseley School Movie Makers Club. These films were screened at the Lighthouse Cinema, Wolverhampton on Monday 7th March 2016, followed by a school screening on the 14th.
SOS - A Found Footage Horror Film by Year 11 Student, Elliott Cox, that took 18 months to create.
Jonny the Clown – A Short Horror/Comedy film, the first project by the clubs newest members.
