PUBLISHED: 17:00 26 September 2012
AN OSCARS-STYLE awards evening was held for Weston College's media students to celebrate their film making success.
With documentaries for The Environment Agency, North Somerset Council and the NHS under their belts the talented students are being sought by regional businesses wanting professionally-made films.
Course co-ordinator, Wendy Chadwick, said: “It is significant that other companies are coming forward asking us to create films for them.
“Not only do our students direct, produce and act but they have to negotiate contracts and ensure they are adhered to as with any well run business.”
The best director award went to Corry Raymond, aged 19, of Montpelier, in Weston, best producer was Jordan Pincombe, aged 17, of The Drive, Milton and best actor was given to Becky Cutts, aged 17, of Longdown Drive, Weston.
