2017 – Stick with Friends

Unfortunately, the RTS decided to remove the primary category from it’s festival this year. Instead, the children decided to produce a 60 second advert for the Childnet Film Competition 2017 around the statement ‘Be the Change – It starts with us’.

RTS Trophy


All our hard work paid off and UCPS beat off a number of excellent entries to take home the trophy at this year’s Young People’s Media Festival. The challenge will now be to see if we can successfully defend our title next year!

The Computer Club have been trying their hand at different types of animation including super imposing mouths on to still images using Funny Face Maker on the iPads, stop motion animation using I Can Animate again on the iPads and 2Animate on the PCs. We even used the custom animations in PowerPoint!

Combining all these new skills, we produced the short animated film below entitled Mike and the Mysterious Monster which we have entered into this year’s Young People’s Media Festival at the University of Sunderland! The festival is due to take place on 19th May so wish us luck.
