Iris’s Film Project

Iris has been working very hard over the past few weeks on her new home ed project documenting life with her animals. She has also narrated the film. This project was created with her own interests at the core, it has improved her confidence while recording her voice and built on many skills as we worked together creating the film. I have a feeling this will be the first of many as she has really enjoyed making this one with me.

6 Top tips for filming animals:
1. Patience, Patience, Patience! 
2. Get into the animal’s world
3. Wait & Watch
4. Get up early to get the best light
5. Know your location
6. They don’t follow scripts so follow them and see what happens, be flexible

Dear Iris

I hear you even if you do not speak.  I watch, noticing the details, see and feel more than I ever imagined I could.  I stopped focusing on what was hard, I stopped pushing those things that frustrated you, aggravated or even blocked your learning.  Together with the help from our animals, you are learning to use your voice.     

We have learned how to be with each other without needing these words and I feel that has helped you, the pressure was lifted. 
I am so proud of you for creating this video with me and sharing it with others, to inspire them to give their children the space and time they need too.  x
