PQA Richmond ventured into Hertfordshire on 9th July to film the final scenes for their latest short film.

The concept, created by Red Group students, spans two individuals through the significant social change of the past century, with a special focus on WW2 and its impact on relationships.

Professional videographer, Matthew Kaltenborn directed the shoot within the stunning and secluded woodlands of Rothampstead Park in Harpenden.

The 15 strong Red Group crew were on board to deliver quality costume, makeup, sound, performances and ensure the day ran smoothly.

The collaboration came from younger students, Beatrix (age 6) and Fred (age 7) and parents of students Connor and Kiera, who made their acting debut as older versions of the characters in 1967.

A member of the behind the scenes crew, Lewie Bainsfair, turned 13 on the day and the cast celebrated in style with pizza and ice cream!

A wonderful time was had by all.


PQA Richmond teaches children age 4-18 in Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television. Within their first year, they won two film awards – 'My Final Frontier' + 'War and Cake' and were invited to the Leicester Square cinema to watch their creation. The Film & Television module encourages students to write, direct and star in an array of documentaries, short films and music videos.
