Film details and synopsis:

Round my corner - Scarlet Rouge

Round my corner - Scarlet Rouge

This film was made by St George’s Beneficial C of E Primary School, Hanover Street, Portsmouth.

Following a study of the Film Noir genre, students looked at the generic conventions between film and narrative. Character, setting and plot as well as speaking and listening opportunities were planned into this project. Students wrote, pitched their ideas for funding, chose locations, dressed sets, filmed, directed and edited their production.

In a back street gambling den, a card game takes place between 3 people. The card game goes as planned for Pablo but events take a turn for the worse. Will the detective be able to solve the murder of Pablo?

The ‘Round My Corner’ competition focused on family, friends and local neighbourhoods and could have been filmed on anything from a professional video camera to a smartphone.

To enter, you had to be aged between 14 and 19 and produce a film no longer than three minutes in length based on what ‘Round My Corner’ means to you.

Although the competition is now closed, you can still send us your videos highlighting anything that may be happening in the area around you.
