Carrying on from the previous post, I forgot to say Louis was at his first business meeting on Friday. I had done work with Scottish Screen in the past, training Primary and Secondary teachers how to use moving image in class. Some of the advice and materials for creating video was later put onto a website, but now they want to complete the other sections of the website.
I will be helping out with a couple of the other Lead Practitioners in writing pages for the Analyse and Explore sections. Analyse will look at activities you can do with pupils to study the sound, colour, camera angles etc of film clips. Explore will help pupils understand more about our moving image cultural heritage and hopefully help them enjoy films beyond the mainstream Hollywood.
Thankfully I am able to work up to 10 days on maternity leave. Saying that I don't know when my maternity leave started, if it even has started - my last payslip was still showing me as off ill rather than on maternity leave. Ho hum.
