Enviro film a winner for students
BOAMBEE Public School students carried off a short film award this week for their five-minute film Loos, Litter and Lights.
The young filmmakers won the Under 12 section of the North Coast Environment Council's short film competition, Visual Eloquence 2008.
Council member Mark Graham, who presented the students with their award, said Loos, Litter and Lights was a humorous film that would appeal to adults and children alike, providing some good environmental tips.
Boambee Public School principal Susan Hedgecoe said over the past few years students at Boambee had been involved in scripting, shooting and editing short films as part of a 'cineliteracy' program that was designed to teach literacy skills whilst giving students a look at what is involved in the film industry.
“Boambee students have created their very own production company, Tallow Wood Productions,” Ms Hedgecoe said.
