iPod Nano Winners
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
The Western Telegraph and Pembrokeshire College Podcast competition winners have been announced: two budding film-makers from Greenhill School, Tenby – Harry Whitehurst and Theo Morgan-Somers (pictured above with Assistant Principal Barry Walters.)
Both boys, who entered a film entitled ‘Fingers’ Crossed’ as ‘Fishtank Productions’ told the tale of how good and bad luck can change your future, or is it also down to attitude? They employed a split-screen feature to tell two different versions of a typical day in Pembrokeshire, starting off at home having breakfast and moving on to Saundersfoot harbour and sensory garden where fate plays its hand. The winning podcast can be viewed via the Pembrokeshire College website link on You Tube. Both boys received Nano iPods as prizes.
Geoff Elliot, Director of Marketing, Skills and Development, said: ‘This was a new idea for us – inviting school children to make a short film themselves reflecting their lives in Pembrokeshire. We wanted to see what Pembrokeshire’s youngsters would come up with, because the ethos of the College is that you will naturally learn about things that you feel passionate about. We also hoped to see some fledgling talent for film-making – which we certainly did. Harry and Theo’s film was technically excellent, with sophisticated editing and a music theme, and told a story with a message’.
Runner up prizes of iTunes vouchers were also received by Kyle James, from Cosheston, and a group from Tasker Milward School: Lauren Hillary; Kayleigh Mortimer; Shannon Treiber-Johnson and Luzelle Davies.
