Students make movies with a message

November 16, 2013


STUDENTS turned film-makers to highlight the dangers of dodgy dealers.

Nineteen media students from Regent College, in the city, made short films to support city trading standards' efforts to raise awareness of unscrupulous sellers.

The films were made by the students as part of their BTech diploma in film and TV production, to mark National Consumer Week.

The students, aged from 16 to 19, made films ranging from 45 seconds to five minutes.

The winning team of Brett Rogers, Rebecca Davies and Mo Motara made a film about the dangers of buying a secondhand car.

The films were judged by assistant city mayor for neighbourhood services, Councillor Sarah Russell, trading standards officers and staff from Citizens' Advice.

Phil Irving, teacher of English and media, said: The students had about a month to make the films and it will satisfy the course brief for making a production for an outside agency. The footage from all the films will be edited into a montage which will go on YouTube.

The first three in the competition were given trophies and the whole group was given the opportunity of a driving day experience.
