Short Films

The following is a list of all the short films on video which we have produced since 1992 up to now. You can see some pictures   and you can also read some of the scripts (since 97), whose writing generally takes most of the time.  You can also play some scenes in Real Audio files. You'll need RealPlayer, of which you can download a basic version, free, from Real Media . If any teachers are interested in how we do this, you can take a look at some short guidelines . Making these films was just great fun, and a wonderful opportunity to develop output skills and improve pronunciation. Although the kids often end up putting in a lot of murders, and morbid settings and dialogues, writing of the script and shooting schedules are always peaceful and enjoyable gatherings. I truly believe that fiction has a curative effect, though most of us are only allowed to witness the demiurgic power of professional artists, and have hardly any chance at all to develop our own personal needs to enact other selves than ourselves. If you want to read more on the subject there's an article published in Greta and another contribution for TESOL video interest magazine. I consider the Joint Construction strategy used in developing the activity a very interesting way of dealing with some of the problems EFL teachers face. There's a contribution in Catalan , for those who may be interested in a rationale.
Our Department of Education  has a good page on the use of video for educative purposes, Fem vídeo.
