Film & Arts Features
Northants youngsters are making a film about the places they live. Here they write about a local landmark.
The Arts Meets Environment (AMEF) project focused on the wind turbines at Burton Wold, near Kettering.
The 10 turbines have been given names by local school children:
Below, some of the young people write about the AMEF project. See their pictures by going to our photo gallery.
From the undertone of the carriageway
Child's play in the peace park
With its bull rings and its castle mound
The classical constructions
Thrapston is so many things
One idea for a turbine at Burton Wold
This season's AMEF multi-media project was one that we could all relate too.
We travelled far and near, to raging rivers and twirling turbines to film what has never been filmed before, to show the County what it has and find ourselves on a journey to the heart and soul of Northamptonshire.
Majestic monsters, whirling wizards,
Mighty metal, whispering wonders,
It is a really good experience. It opens your eyes to the possibilities of using new technology, chat to newly made friends and learn at the same time.
I mean before this I didn't really like cameras but through coming here I really like them.
Tried to do a poem about wind and such here goes:
Metallic menace at first sight,
I think the programme is really good because it teaches us some things about all sorts like drawing, photography and music.
I have become more interested in cameras and technology so it's an experience I can use all over the place.
I've learned to be more social able, and by doing this I've just had a laugh!
