Film students from Highfields School had a touch of glitz and glamour this week as they held their annual Oscars event.
On Wednesday, May 22, the course-work of year 13 students was showcased at an awards evening in the school.
The students have to create a short film as part of their final assessment and every year the film studies teachers, Ms Stanley and Mr Key, organise this event to celebrate their achievements.
The evening was a great success with many students and their guests, including family and friends, attending.
The films ranged in genre from horror, espionage and thriller, to a silent film about a French mime artist, to stop motion animation, to an impressionistic representation of the dreams of Sleeping Beauty. Students are responsible for making the whole film, from start to finish, on their own.
The awards were:
Best film - Richard Young
Best director - Chelsea Dunlop
Best Cinematography - Lucy Parkinson
Best Actor - Lewis Gelsthorpe
Best Actress - Emily Duncanson
Best use of Sound - Chelsea Dunlop
