The brief of the competition was to explore the changing workplace and explore the idea of more people working from home. Both groups loved making their films, using the cameras and learning editing skills. The rap video was written by the pupils and features some excellent rapping skills! In the other film – made by James, Reece, Oscar, Imogen and Kieran – pupils interviewed remote workers about their experience using Zoom.
