City as Studio: Moving Image Showreel

“It was such a good opportunity for us to work alongside Modern Art Oxford and take time to really explore the alternative aesthetic of the city through the eyes of young contemporaries like us .. We had lessons with Modern Art Oxford teaching us the ways of filming and editing, along with musical input, to help prepare for our final film … The process was challenging but lots of fun!” – A-level student Phoebe

City as Studio is Modern Art Oxford’s annual project with schools, focusing on exploring the city through digital moving image. Led by artist Kate Mahony, the 2019 project Moving Image had students from Oxford Spires Academy, Cheney School, Oxford Sixth Form College and City College working in groups to create short art films which look beyond surface impressions of Oxford to portray experiences of real life in the city streets. Watch the student’s finished film shorts in the below video showreel.
