RIC Filmmakers, armed with film cameras and as part of their Community Learning session, today visited The Museum of the Moon at Rochester Cathedral.
The students from Year 7, 8 and 9 have been asked by Rochester Cathedral to produce a short film documenting the exhibition and, in particular, capture visitor’s views on the stunning attraction.
Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. It measures seven metres in diameter and features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. Each centimetre represents 5km of the moon’s surface. Alongside the installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.
The Museum of the Moon has been presented in a number of locations across the world including several UK Cathedrals and Museums. As it travels from place to place, it gathers new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The Exhibtion opens today (12thFebruary) and runs until the 4thMarch.
The next task for RIC Filmmakers is to enter the editing suite and piece together an exciting film for Rochester Cathedral to use in order to document their exhibition.
