Writer, Director James Bogle Visits Marcellin Campus

During Marcellin Campus' Book Week activities, writer and TV/film director, James Bogle, visited our Marcellin Campus Library to speak with Year 7 Religion, Year 8 English and Year 11 History classes. James explained his film-making process, using examples from his own work, such as In the Winter Dark, Lockie Leonard, and the 4-part ABC docu-drama The War that Changed Us, that is currently screening on Tuesday nights.

James spoke on a variety of areas, depending upon the class:

the 'hero's journey' in storytelling
adapting novels into screenplays
using primary sources
dramatisation of historical events
location shooting
his personal experiences

It was an amazing experience and opportunity for the College, and students' behaviour and quality of questions were very impressive.
