STUDENTS at a Worle school were given the red carpet treatment as two teenagers revealed a new film to help raise cash for a Weston charity.

Priory Community School pupils Matt Filer and George Grant made the 40-minute film Obscurity with 20 fellow students and raised more than £150 at the school premiere.

The proceeds, which are still coming in, will be donated to Weston Hospicecare.

Students, parents and staff attended the screening and got to see what life can be like for teenagers if they get involved in the wrong groups.

George, aged 15, said: “We would like the film to be seen by people all across the world, and it will also be wonderful to raise money for such a worthy cause.”

Obscurity captures the life of a 15-year-old boy who suffers from anxiety and anger problems and the film is being put together by Matt’s own production enterprise which he uses to create 
promotional media for companies, organisations and charities in Weston.
