Young people reveal their personal experiences of the Olympics through film
A group of young people are getting behind the camera as they create a film about their personal experience of the Olympic Games.
The secondary school pupils are taking part in the creative five-day project called, Going For Gold, at the Arc Theatre last week.
They were asked to produce a short film which show-cased what the Olympics meant to them.
The film, which includes drama, poetry and music, will be screened to family and friends tomorrow and will form part of the up-coming Molton Festival.
Arc Education director Natalie Smith said: “It’s been going really well so far and they young people are picking up new skills and really enjoying themselves. It’s great that the film will be in the Molton Festival.”
