​Following the recent success of the Year 12 Cinematica Film Screening, Wenonah van Damme, Year 12 provides her reflection of the journey to her final film assessment.

You could say that preparation for the Cinematic 2019 showcase has been a 3-year process. Since day 1 in Year 10, we’ve been deconstructing, analysing and discussing film - topics such as different directors, times, genres and places and the role film plays in society, how influential film can be? We have also been lucky enough to get into the process of production ourselves, a trial and error process which has allowed us to develop our own technique and styles to explore the human condition. Aside from the art of film, we’ve also learnt a lot about ourselves and what it means to be human. It’s easy to say we fell in love with film quickly, all thanks the passion and the dedication of our teachers, Ms Osborne and Mr Carozza.

Our journey as a cohort has evidently paid off, Thursday night showcased an incredible variety of films with all types of influences. Students utilised the techniques from surrealism, the new wave film movement, experimental films and other genres such as Horror and Gothic to produce their films. Regardless of influences, it was amazing to see how each students' own cinematic styles have developed over the years from showcase to showcase, and watching it come together. Cinematica truly showcased that we have become our own filmmakers.

We have so many people to thank for supporting our film journey over the years. Our friends and family who have starred in countless roles, our teachers who have constantly inspired us and pushed us to think that little bit deeper and of course the school who have provided us with the equipment and spaces to make our ideas come to life. It’s important to thank our audiences who have come and supported our work at every single showcase. Film is after all an art that is meant to be seen, we make these films for you.
