Students delve into mud for movie

MEDIA students from Weston College boosted their skills in producing and directing by making a live film, based on the hit ITV show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

Media production course co-ordinator, Wendy Chadwick, and media tutor, Dan Andrews, took on the roles of the show’s presenters Ant and Dec, to oversee the students delve into boxes of sea mud, soup, cold beans and soaked bread.

Wendy said: “It was a great collaborative fast-paced experience for students to gain insight into what it’s like working on a real TV set.

“They had a live script and were not allowed to stop the cameras rolling so any mistakes stayed.”

The winner of the competition was Josh Graylish, aged 18, of Summerlands Road in Weston.
