Ilford pupils learn the magic of movie making by meeting Batman animal wrangler
Pupils at an Ilford school got a chance to sample some of the more unusual facets of movie making thanks to a special visitor.
Isaac Newton Academy, Cricklefield Place, students got a chance to meet animal wrangler Trevor Smith, who has worked
on films such as Batman and Mission Impossible.
He explained how animals were trained for movies and how getting the right shots requires a good understanding of the creatures you are working with.
The visit was part of FILMCLUB’s Close Encounters scheme which allows students to get a glimpse behind the cameras and into the movie industry expanding their horizons and get them thinking of careers in film beyond the most obvious.
