Film screening showcases students’ work for counselling service
Students studying TV & Film held a special screening of six short videos based on the theme of ‘anxiety’.
The original, 30-second films, were created for the Havering & Brentwood Bereavement Service (HBBS) to promote and raise awareness of #4ME – a unique, free counselling service for young people.
The films will be used on the HBBS social media platforms.
The upper sixth students, all in their final term of the Creative Media Production (TV & Film) BTEC Diploma, were asked to work in groups to make a short film aimed at helping teenagers suffering from anxiety.
The collaboration between the College and the counselling service was part of the Social Action and Community Media Production units in the BTEC qualification.
All six films at the screening were received exceptionally well by the audience, which included representatives from HBBS.
Tutor Holly Whelan said: “The work produced this year by the students was excellent. There were so many original ideas. The six films chosen by HBBS will be used on their social media to raise awareness of the help that is available to young people suffering from anxiety.
“It has been a very positive experience for both our students and the clients at HBBS to work together, and we were pleased to be able to share the result of this collaboration at the screening.”
