Picasso Club Presents Planet Dickens – Our Festive Film

Imagine a world with no snow, how would you survive Christmas? Picasso club’s second short film with debut performances from Frank, Molly, Amina and Caitlin.
In Picasso Club this term we created a short film; making the scenes with a mixture of collage and drawings, wrote scripts for the characters and as a group created a storyboard for all the things we wanted to happen in the film.

Main characters ‘Bob’ and ‘Bryce’ want to build a ‘Planet Dickens’ an imaginary planet to find some snowman, as there is no snow they set of to travel to snow!

For the first time we tested out using a Green Screen, which is what is used in films to make the characters look like they are somewhere else, placing the characters in the backdrops we created.

We discussed how films can be art, looking at how camera angles can change the way we think about the story and all the ways that people work to make films look amazing.
