  1. Lovely – what a delightful lesson, and the homework realises some creative and fun potential for students as well. This film is ideal for a wide range of levels and the charming video really warrants repeat viewings. Always a big fan of your work Kieran, and my university students in Taiwan really get a kick out of your lessons – class favs! Happy to contribute to your superb website. Cheers.

  4. I’m new to your website. I want to say thanks for sharing these lessons. I used Colors twice today and it went over well. The students and I really enjoyed it. As a small thank you, I’ve just bought and downloaded your book, How to Write Film and Video Activities, from Amazon. I’m excited to dive into it!
