The resource task enables them to practise their performance skills, designing a new western-themed advert for a product of their choice, whilst incorporating scenes shot at Cowboy Town (these will be edited back at school).
Students will need to complete scripts and practise their advert prior to arrival at Cowboy Town in order to ensure that the work can be completed on site.
