Student Designs Road Safety Wales Christmas Campaign
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
As part the Road Safety Wales Campaign, Pembrokeshire College’s Interactive Media students were given a competition brief to create a short film demonstrating the devastation of driving, whilst under the influence of drinks and drugs.
The creativity demonstrated by the students was so “outstanding” that only Pembrokeshire College’s work was submitted to the judging panel. The
all-Wales winner this year was Level 3 Extended Diploma in Interactive Media student, Joel Langston. Kirsty Donoghue from Road Safety Wales was given the task to adjudicate, but admitted it was a challenge, “The standard of work was really high; Joel’s and Shannon’s work however stood apart, even though their approach to the brief was very different, they were both equally as powerful.”
Joel’s animated film, which has a retro computer game theme, will be used to launch the campaign at the South Wales Police, Merthy Tydfil constabulary next week.
Shannon Buckley’s animation was highly commended and Tataum Charlton, Llyr Griffiths and Charlie Humphreys were all commended.
“This is not the first time Interactive Media students have received accolades for their work; students have won this competition several times since 2012, but this was the first time that College talent swept the board across Wales. This is a great achievement!” said course tutor Denys Bassett-Jones.
