Young DaDa Cinema Trip

Young DaDa took a group of young people to the cinema to see Jack the Giant Slayer in on a snowy day in March 2013. The trip was part of the Schoolageddon film-making project they were involved in and part of completing their Arts Award.

Young DaDa members are offered a chance to gain an Arts Award through DaDaFest. The Arts Award builds confidence, helps young people to enjoy cultural activities and prepares them for further education or employment.

Review Interview with Joe
Describe what you have been doing:
A group of 9 of us including staff watched “Jack the Giant Slayer” at the Odeon in Liverpool One. The film was in IMAX 3D.

What is it that you like about films?
It took a child’s fairy-tale and turned it into something very entertaining, I loved the CGI animation in it.

What did you like about the film you’ve just been watching?
Honestly the film in a whole was good, like I said before the CGI was great.

What didn’t you like about the film?
In some scenes you can tell what’s going to happen. I would like to use an example but I wouldn’t want to spoil it, just trust me you’ll know.

Would you take your friends to see this film? If so why?
I would take a friend to see it. The reason why is, there are some scenes that you can see, laugh or the one of.

Did watching the film give you any ideas to use in the next film you make?
It does depend on if I decide to take on another film project, but yes I have an idea or two.

Review Interview with Jake 
Describe what you have been doing:
We have been watching “Jack the Giant Slayer” at the Odeon cinema in Liverpool ONE.What is it that you like about films?
I like watching films because it gives me the anticipation of a story.

What did you like about the film you have just been watching?
The props.

What didn’t you like about the film?
The film had too many digitally made scenes and the acting was not serious.

Would you take your friends to see this film? If so why?
Personally I wouldn’t because my friends are in to more realistic films which give more intensity and anticipation.

Did watching the film give you any ideas to use in the next film you make?
It could help me as there was many tricks in the film that made you think it was going to end at a certain point.
