Years 7 & 8's Red Carpet Film Premiere

Published Wednesday 8th of August 2012 04:47:41 PM

Pupils at Skippers Hill Manor Preparatory School showcased their ambitious film making efforts to parents and friends at the red carpet premiere of their film 'War Children' at the school on Tuesday 3rd July.

Year 8 pupils from the school in Mayfield, East Sussex, have written, filmed, edited and produced 'War Children', which was filmed in the local area and features Year 7 pupils from the school as the cast. The characters and script have been created in response to themes surrounding evacuees from the Second World War, which they have developed in their English and history lessons.

Parents and the local community have supported the project by assisting with costumes, props and locations. The local area has offered numerous locations which have proven ideal for filming, including the school itself, the Bluebell Railway and Bewl Water.

The children revealed the product of their efforts to parents and friends at the black tie event on Tuesday night, when the cast and film crews will arrived for a red carpet reception before premiering the film. The evening continued with an 'Oscar'-style awards ceremony recognising the efforts and skills of the pupils involved in the project.
