Friesland sixth-formers studying film and media all submitted entries for Friesland School’s much loved annual SCRAP awards.
“It really has become quite a prestigious event,” says Year 13 student, Sam Slack, who contributed to two of the films entered. “In one, we did a skit on ‘The Jeremy Kyle Show’. We love the opportunity to make fun films, quickly as a group and then to show them to the whole of sixth form. Everyone really enjoys the event.”
SCRAP stands for Student Challenge Rallying Around Production – participants are given just a few hours to form a group, plan, film and edit a production. It has now become a familiar part of sixth-form end of year activities and each entry is scrutinised by a panel of judges, who award prizes to several of the films. All of this year’s proud winners can be seen in the picture.
Later in the year, an Oscar’s style ceremony will take place, to showcase all student work prepared for A’Level examinations. Year 12 student, Billie Morton Riley says, “Friesland sixth-form really is a fun, exciting place to study film and media.”
