Hear film education experts discuss how using film in the curriculum can inspire and stimulate learning in the classroom.

Now that you’ve seen some examples of how one-shot films have been used in a variety of curricular projects and you have thought about and planned the film you will create, it’s time to start filming. Please refer back to the previous step for filmmaking guidance if you need to.

Share your film

Once you’ve made your film, upload it to YouTube. If you have a Gmail address, you will already have a YouTube account. If not, it’s quick and easy to set one up.

If you’re unsure about how to add your film to YouTube simply follow FutureLearn’s instructions.

Once you’ve created your account on YouTube, upload your video and copy its URL and add to the Comments section below to share with your peers. You can keep on or turn off the comments on your YouTube videos as you wish, but for the peer evaluation in the next few steps, it’s best to keep them on.

Please do not add video content of young people without written parental permission or video content of adults without their consent. An example of a parental permission slip is attached.
