Films for Truro School

Truro Senior School Film

This film focuses on Truro Upper School, and features some of the unique aspects offered by the school’s location in Cornwall, including geology field trips and surfing at Perranporth Beach.

We spent two days filming at the school and at other locations nearby to obtain footage that gives a real sense of the experience of students at the school. In addition, vox pop style interviews with students and parents, rather than a scripted voice-over, add to a powerful sense of immediacy and authenticity.

I commissioned Sharp Focus Productions to undertake the filming of our Prep School and our Senior School – to create a five-minute film for each school that would go on our website. I had a particular vision in mind of what I wanted – films that encapsulated what a special and unique place both schools are, as well as capturing the Cornishness of our environment, and the huge variety of activities and lessons that take place in a typical week. The final cuts of the films did that and more. Through inspired and creative filming combined with highly professional and clever editing, the films truly reflect life in our schools. Rob was an excellent director, and his team blended into the school day with the very minimum of disruption – getting the most out of the pupils and the teachers. I found the whole experience a real pleasure, as well as a stimulating creative project. I would highly recommend any school to work with Sharp Focus Productions – they are excellent value for money.
