The Mix Up Theatre Video Diaries - A Documentary Project - Coranavirus: Kids OFF School.

Updated: 4 days ago

It's a strange time we're all living in just now and we have asked our students to keep a video diary of their thoughts. Something that we can look back on in the future.



This is a documentary project and we will make a film out of everyone's video diaries when we are all back to normal.


Our Video Diaries Start from DAY 1 - Friday 20th March 2020 (The Last Day of School) and will continue until it's First Day Back at School.

As we don't know how long this will be, it might provide an interesting snapshot of this time for families to look back on.


If you are interested in being involved then here's what we need from you...


  • First make sure you have parents/carer permission to take part and you might even ask them to film the video if easier for you.


  • Students create their own video diary, it doesn't need to be every day and can be filmed on camera/phone/laptop, etc. - doesn't need to be professional quality.


  • In the video the student can discuss their thoughts on events, what they've been doing that day, how they are feeling etc.


  • The same goes for children who will still be attending school during this time, how different school life is for them.


  • The video can also include other family members, pets, etc.


  • If there's any particular special events (Birthdays, Marriages, etc) that can be filmed as well might be interesting.


  • In the first video you create for us please include your name.


When you have created a video ask your parent / carer to send on to us by e-mail or through the free we transfer website- www.wetransfer.com


If you need any help or need to ask questions just leave us a message in the Comments section below...


One of our Edinburgh Senior Students, Cameron, has sent on his first video, have a watch here to give you an idea of the type of thing we're looking for:
