The world of filmmaking involves so many different jobs, often with strange names, like foley artist and gaffer! Help your students master film production roles with this set of Film Role flash cards and activities. A perfect addition to your film studies unit or as an introduction to practical projects, the flash cards help students to explore film industry careers and their place within the three stages of film production.

Here are some suggestions (explained in the resource notes):

  • Giant Venn Diagram activity – clear some space and get students moving with a fun collaborative task as they allocate roles to the three stages of film production (detailed instructions and suggested answers are included in the resource). A great activity to do outdoors on a nice day too!
  • Match-up – pair roles with definitions around the room – another activity to get students out of their seats
  • Concentration – giant memory floor game!
  • Exit card – student selects a random card and provides the correct definition or role that matches the card pulled
  • Flash cards – use individually, in groups or as a class to test knowledge of terms. If you laminate your cards, students can also write on the back with a whiteboard marker
