Students taste of red carpet
HILLCREST Christian College held its gala film evening for film, television and media students last week.
Film and television teacher Norman Power said the evening, aptly titled Capture, was the fourth annual event.
"Over 200 people attended and walked the red carpet, past the photographers and did video interviews as they made their way into the college theatre for the ceremony," he said.
Video productions from Film, Television and New Media students in Years 10-12 were presented in an awards-style ceremony showing segments of nominated work and the winners' film in full.
Year 12 student Sam Rourke won the award for Best Editor.
"Capture is a great night, and it's really nice to be rewarded for a year's hard work in film," she said.
Mr Power said all films shown were assessment tasks from throughout the year.
"The students were presented awards for various disciplines such as Best Editor and Cinematographer and for categories such as Best Music Video, Best Documentary and Best Film," he said.
The night was attended by scriptwriter Shirley Pierce and the New York Film Academy's, Brisbane campus representative, Simon Hunter.
Year 11 student Carly Henderson took out the award for Best Instructional Film for her work.
"It is a greatly anticipated night for everyone, especially the film students," she said.
"I was so excited when I received an award after all the effort and time I put into film all year. It is a great night and I encourage everyone to come along next year."
College captain Bianca Banchetti said: "From the atmosphere to the talent, from the visual effects to the production, everything about Capture was simply - captivating."
Over 200 people attended and walked the red carpet.
