World Book Day trailers released

5 March 2014

Landsky worked with 12 Hackney teenagers to make complementary video trailers for books released on World Book Day (6 March).

The DYH2014 project was an opportunity to get young people excited about stories and reading, with free books available.

Tales from Page to the ScreenThe 3-day film-making project was designed for 13 to 16 year olds to create trailers about books in the run up to World Book Day.

Participants learned:

  • – how to operate a camera and filming techniques
  • – develop ideas & script to create a storyboard
  • – location filming
  • – direct and act
  • – edit the films and sound using Final Cut Pro

The trailers were screened at both the Rio and the Hackney Picturehouse cinemas.
