VISIT FROM ADEYEMI MICHAEL – DOCUMENTARY FILM MAKER
Yemi graduated from the National Film and Television school
in London and his graduation final documentary has done exceptional well in all
the festivals around the world including the prestigious Sheffield Doc
Yemi attended a Y13 Creative media class for a chat and to
show his film shorts, he then took part in a question and answer session with
the students. Yemi also attended a Y7 English class to talk about what makes a
good story and how to develop it into something more.
All the students that took part thoroughly enjoyed listening
to Yemi and interacting with a question and answer chat. Yemi was both informative and inspirational talking
about where he grew up on a london housing estate and relating his work to his
own personal circumstances and the people around him. It gave students an insight into how to
achieve their ambitions and look at how the right choices can help bring a
positive outcome. It did also show that the
wrong choices could sometimes be devastating.
