School unites in film project

Pupils at Chilwell School have made a movie that's getting a city premiere.

It's probably a dream of most school pupils - having the chance to star, produce or write their own movie.

Thanks to the innovative thinking of teacher Anna Hawkes from Chilwell School, the pupils devised the ten minute feature Another Day.

Initially it was a means to find exciting and unusual ways to develop literacy skills but the idea blossomed to involve just about all the school.

16-year-old Josh Beaumont was the producer of the movie. "Everybody involved in the project had their say and their ideas went into the hat. Then the script team chose which was the best and this went into the film."

What's come out is a comedy about one man's bad day and a chain of events that affects everything.

"We kept learning things," says Josh. "The amount of skills we've learnt is phenomenal. We've had so many professionals helping us...we're all the better for it now. There are a lot of skills people will be able to use later on in life."

The film was even given a proper premiere at the Broadway cinema in Nottingham.

The hope is that this will be the first of many similar projects, not just at Chilwell but throughout Nottinghamshire.

Teenage film producer Josh Beaumont says: "The project is a media initiative encouraging other schools to take part. We're hoping this will inspire other schools to have a go. We've already got another school interested, but from Chilwell's point of view this is the first of many."
