Scene from 'Fast Cash'

Havering students just say, "No"

Media students from Havering College have created two short music videos rolling an anti-drug message out across the borough.

Nine media students from Havering College were commissioned to produce an anti-drugs video after successfully pitching their ideas to the Havering Police and the Havering Drug and Alcohol Action Team. (Havering DAAT)

With a budget of £2000 the students split into two groups and created two music videos aimed at teenagers up to the age of 16.

Lecturer, Maverick Kelly said, "The students were nervous but still put on an excellent pitch. The two final† videos were very different to each other but equally effective in getting their message across."

As well as sending out a very positive message the whole process gave the students a real insight into the film industry. "It was good to be thrown in the deep end to see if we could sink or swim. We were definitely swimming" says media student Lee Brown.

Both films were premiered on screens in Trafalgar Square as part of the Festival of Youth Arts.

The films are expected to be shown to teenagers arcoss the borough as part of drugs awareness events being held by Havering DAAT
