Hollywood comes to your school
How does an incursion day work?
Typically, each program has three activities that all students will rotate through during the course of the day. All packages comprise of one video activity, one audio activity & animation production.
Each activity is completed during the session and available for playback immediately. Each school will be left with an MPEG4 video file of the video and animation activities.
Schools will also be left with MP3 audio files of the radio shows.
If you have 3 classes, you can do a whole day program involving 3 rotations. If you have 2 classes, you can do 2 activities and finish at lunchtime or pay the minimum fee and do 3 activities.
If you have more than 3 classes, sessions can be extended over two or three days.
Preparation varies from package to package. While most programs can be done with no preparation, preparation is recommended as it will make the incursion day run smoother. In most cases, you can be fully prepared for an activity in one hour.
For the grades Prep, One and Two package, there is no preparation.

100% Hands on Production Activities
Green Screen Television Studio
Welcome to the world of TV magic, when a Green Screen TV studio is set up in a hall or general purpose room. Students perform in front of the Green Screen and pre-recorded backgrounds are superimposed live for the rest of the class to see. Segments include news items, interviews, advertisements, singing, dancing and lots more. The finished product is available for immediate playback and looks like real TV. You’ll be amazed.
Film Making Programs”
“These programs are specifically designed to get grade 5 & 6 students making narrative films on ipads and video cameras. All sessions will involve practical demonstrations incorporating numerous basic production techniques.
Students will observe the whole production process on a large TV via a video cable connected to the camera we use to film the demonstrations. Explanations are given by Michael as each shot is constructed. We guarantee that both teachers and students alike will be left feeling empowered, confident and ready to get started on their first project.
Radio Recording Studio
We set up a small studio with 2 microphones and a mixer. The system is simple to use and will be conducted by your teachers who will receive training before school. Programs include simple audio activities for preps through to a talkback radio show for grade five and six classes. Teachers will be trained before school in how to use the equipment.
Stop Motion Animation
An area at the font of the classroom will be set up for an animation stand. Students will draw backgrounds and make a cut-out figure to move across the background. Teachers will be trained before school in how to use the animation camera.
