Adam Thomas, 18, an Extended Diploma Design student has won a national Dyfed Powys road safety prize for his ‘Don’t Drink and Drive’ short film, which was designed to convey the seriousness of drink driving to schools in Wales.
The competition was rolled out to schools and colleges in all four police authorities in Wales. Adam, who lives in Solva, is the first Pembrokeshire student to be awarded a first prize for the Dyfed Powys area.
Adam, whose creativity is thriving in the College environment, said: “I am delighted to have won this prize, the creative freedom that I am allowed at College has helped me enormously, I made the right decision to come to College.”
Adam’s professional approach to his brief included; developing story-boards, characters, sequence planning and visual research; Adam even arranged his own music! John Gobbi, Pembrokeshire Council’s Road Safety Officer, said “We are once again pleased to be collaborating with Pembrokeshire College on addressing the important issue of road safety amongst our young people. A recent study showed 37% of 11-25 year olds were positively tested for blood alcohol in their system, which is a stark reminder of the importance of conveying the seriousness of road safety. The students did this brilliantly through their animation, the standard of work this year has been exceptional, my congratulations go to the winner – Adam, not forgetting Ross Hurst and Andy Moss who also submitted excellent work.”
