Actors work as a team to create and develop short films using the 5 P’s and explore changes in character through the story. Actors create the story in Term 3, then in Term 4, it’s production term! Actors perform in one film and work behind the camera on the other as crew. The films are shown on the big screen at Premiere Night in March the following year.
