PQA Wickford Eye Film Success!

Young filmmakers are in the final for £2000 top prize.

Huge congratulations are due to the students of PQA Wickford who have 3 entries in the final 15 of an international film competition. The ‘One Minute to Save the World’ competition required students aged 19 and under to make a film of 60 seconds or less, about an important issue they cared about. PQA and non-PQA students were invited to submit their entries, which were judged at The Children’s Media Conference by executives from Disney, Nickelodeon, CBBC and CITV with the winners being revealed at an event in London on 31st July.

The three films made by PQA Wickford students are:

Butterfly Bottox by Charlie Hills

Children’s Rights by Tilly Mae Jones

Plastic World by Wickford PM Green Group

The winning filmmaker/s will be awarded £2000 of vouchers for camera equipment. The success will look terrific on any child’s CV who is wishing to study filmmaking at college or university, or work in the industry in the future.

Principal Teri Levett said, “I am incredibly proud of all the students and have everything crossed for their success. These students have also inspired our other pupils and I hope many more of our young filmmakers will now have the confidence to enter many more film competitions. Thank you to Steve, our film and television teacher, for all his hard work with the children.”

This success is fresh on the heels of Wickford’s AM Green Group reaching the final of the 90 second hot shots competition, and their PM Green Group winning their category in it. Fantastic work everyone!
