The Clip Club: Primary Film-Making & Editing
This chapter describes the film-making journey over 18 months in an after school club—‘The Clip Club’ based in an East London primary school. A small group of 9–10-year-old participants from diverse social backgrounds explore mobile film-making with iPads to produce and edit moving image clips and short films. Over time, funds of practical and pedagogic knowledge accrue relating to the particular affordances of working with film and digital media, aligned not only with children’s existing interests, skills and competencies, but also with their willingness to learn and the specific environments in which such capacities thrive. The study demonstrates that multimodal meaning-making combines messy non-linear processes involving iterative autonomous experimentation, reviewing and redrafting, and social collaborative relations.
