The instrument utilized were Speech proficiency Achievement Test (r=0.73). Treatment lasted for six weeks. Two hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Data retrieved were analysed with t-test. The results showed that there was no significant difference (t (1,284) = -0.09) in the pretest mean scores of the experimental and control groups (p = 0.93 > 0.05). Also, results showed that digital film production strategies revealed significant difference (t (1,138) = 156.62) in the posttest scores of the experimental and control groups (p = 0.00 < 0.05).  Based on the findings, implications for further studies and practices were highlighted comprising language teacher education, English language learning and digital media inclusion in speech proficiency.
