Film & TV Lecturer, Alan Moffat, visited Pirie Park Primary School in Govan this week as part of the school’s planned activities on STEM. He spoke to three P4 classes about some of the technical roles that make up the Film & TV sector and he also gave a practical demonstration of some of the equipment that is used including lights, cameras and microphones.
“I had previously visited Bannerman High School to chat with Media studies pupils and I was looking forward to going back into a school to chat with the primary school children.
They asked some excellent questions including what age do you have to be to make films, why were there so many buttons on the camera and why the light had two different colours. I told them with a little hard work and some serious study, they could be ready to sit an HNC in Television in no time!!! Their teacher thought this was amusing.”
