Amanda shows work by other artists to inspire the group to produce photos about movement and expression as well as using cheap animal masks to create surreal pictures.

The nine video clips can be used as a ready made workshop or as inspiration for a photography based project. The accompanying Teachers notes includes tips and a list of tools that were used.
