How ‘Jigsaw The Movie’ came into being
We commissioned Dorset production company, ScreenPLAY, to help the children of a local school, St John’s CE Primary in Weymouth, to create their own movie to show how the Jigsaw® PSHE scheme of work can help children cultivate a wider social awareness and empathy, by telling the story from their own viewpoint.
The children learned how to animate, direct, storyboard the action, and use the necessary technical equipment, in addition to improvisation and drama techniques to compose their own story. They then filmed, photographed, and audio-recorded the whole school in a very sensitive way.
Alastair Nisbet from ScreenPLAY said, “Over the course of the term, the group grew into a strong unit, who could set up a scene and then film and audio record it like professionals.”
