"Since Artemis began offering the comprehensive units on popular film for use with our classes, the English Department at Otahuhu College has made extensive use of the materials Judy has assembled and crafted into workable, interesting and comprehensive work units.

The notes, background material and tasks have provided teachers with the references necessary to create lesson plans that can cater for the different abilities and interests of our students so that all can have their attention focused and, where appropriate, be extended in their study of film.

Judy’s research and meticulous preparation, coupled with her obvious interest and passion for film, have all contributed to enhancing our course work and programmes at Otahuhu College."

Just a note to say how much we appreciate the thoroughness of your film guides.  We are trying to build up our film resources at present, and the units are proving really helpful to both students and staff.

"Thank you for your great service."

Mercedes College,

Perth, Western Australia.

"I have just finished reading the 90 pages of Judy Lewis's Film Teaching Unit on O Brother Where Art Thou?  To call it comprehensive and useful is to understate the extent of this excellent work.  The background information is superbly researched and presented.  All aspects of mise-en-scène are there to guide the busiest of teachers to a full appreciation of the Coens' intentions as top class directors.  Tests, quizzes, scene-by-scene commentaries, themes, assessment tasks, characterisation - all that and much, much more is to be found, ready for photocopying. 

This is the eighth unit I've bought and I want a lot more.  Excellent stuff."

Don McIntosh,

HOD English, Glenfield College,

"These resources are professionally prepared and practical for classroom use.  The emphasis is on students discovering (under guidance) the subtleties of the film-maker's craft. Suggested activities and supporting material for junior and senior students make the units extremely useful."

E. Middleton,

HOD English, Rosehill College,

Auckland, New Zealand
