Ms Ford, who collaborated with Ivor Novello on Keep the Home Fires Burning, was killed along with her son Walter in March 1918 when a 1,000kg bomb was dropped on Warrington Crescent, Maida Vale.
They were among 12 people to die during the raid and the first US citizens to die in London during the war.
Mr Damianov worked closely with Westminster Academy history teacher and head of humanities Pavel Charitorizhsky on the project.
Mr Chartorizhsky said: “The Zeppelins Over London project was great in terms of helping students develop their historical skills.
“Apart from it being a true case of active learning, with the students experiencing history first hand through an analysis of primary materials through visiting the London archives, bomb sites and through historians and authors, the students also got to find out a little bit about the film maker's craft.
“All the students worked particularly hard and also got to enjoy themselves, despite not realising beforehand just how hard it is to get simple interview snippets on film and other factors affecting filming such as light and sound.
“I was particularly proud of the way a large part of the project was entirely student led. The 6th formers came up with their own questions for historians and the younger students created their own narrative presentation for use in the film.
“All in all, it was a truly enriching experience for the students and myself, and one that we are all grateful for.”
