Ravensbourne Summer School - Sign Up!!

Students will be put into six groups representing each decade from the 1950’s to the 00’s.  Each group will have 5 media/broadcasting students, 2 Photography Students, 5 fashion students and 2/3 graphics students.

Students will be required to research their assigned decade with the aim of putting together a short show reel, showcasing their decade, which could be used as part of their university portfolio.

Fashion students will design and produce the costumes. They will be given materials and mannequins to work with. The final costume will be showcased in their show reel.

Graphics/Moving Image students will design and produce the graphics for the show reel. They will learn new techniques in graphic design software.

Broadcast/Media will learn about all aspects of filmmaking. They will film the activities of the fashion and graphics students and will carry out interviews with team members. They will film and edit the final show reel.

Photography students will photograph the activities of their team members and the final costumes and use their images to help put together the final showreel.
