A group from Farr High School and one pupil from Thurso High School visited the Museum in May 2017. They worked with self taught film maker and photographer Mike Guest.
Pupils from Farr High School and one pupil from Thurso High School worked with Mike Guest for a series of animation and film making workshops. They worked in small groups to put together some short stop motion animations using things that were found in the Museum. They then worked with Mike at overlaying sound effects and editing to produce finished animations.
They also learnt some photography techniques and camera skills. Mike showed them some professional photography skills and they produced some portrait photographs of each other. By experimenting with depth of fieldand light and editing techniques they produced some very interesting shots.
