Making Documentries: Visiting Speaker

Posted on: 10/07/2019

On Monday 17th June, it was a privilege to welcome documentary filmmaker Stewart Morgan Hadjukiewicz to Hatch End High. Stewart delivered a talk to 60 GCSE / A-Level Art, Photography & Media students, screening and discussing his short film ‘Wellbeloved’ (a butchers shop specialising in home-made pies, pictured below). He spoke about documentary films in particular; his own practice, how he got into it and learned the skills, and how the students might explore their own documentary-making using phones, cameras and audio recordings.

Students gained an insight into the world of documentary filmmaking and it was particularly beneficial for the Year 12 Film Studies students, with very helpful links to their coursework.
