A CHESTER teenager has had some reel success in a film festival.
Adam Williams’ film Boy’s Big Adventure, has been selected for the Co-operative Film Festival at the National Film and Television Museum in Bradford.
Adam, 13, made the film with his cousin Cameron McIvor, also 13, and his sister Jasmine, 10, plays a part in it.
“It’s really more of a trailer for a movie,” said Adam, who attends the Cutting Edge Film School at Upton High School.
“It’s about a boy who blows up a house because he is using too much deodorant. He then tries to trick his way past the firefighters so that he can get his sprays back.”
Adam is part of a group of students from Cutting Edge who have also had a film accepted for the festival. The youngsters, from Upton High School, Abbey Gate College, Christleton High and Neston High, made A Life of Opposites, a comedy of differences based on the theory that pleasure is balanced with pain.
Director Rick Smith said: “I am so proud of their achievements. Film making is a long and laborious process, but the results have been incredible. The group recently won the Teenagers’ Category at the Battle of the Silver Screen competition as part of the Midsummer Festivals in Chester and now they have been specially selected to screen their work at this festival.”
Cutting Edge Film School meets at Upton High School to study camera and film making techniques as well as filming and editing workshops. For more information, e-mail Rick Smith on email@example.com.
