BRITTNI Crofts is in the limelight again.
The 17-year-old was a regular feature in Mundubbera news until she moved to Maryborough at the end of 2010, to complete her secondary education.
Towards the end of her first year at Aldridge State School in Maryborough, she was elected one of the school captains for 2012 and recently she was recognised for her creative talents.
At the school’s awards night Brittni received film and television, dramaand music awards and an academic distinction.
This was followed by the film awards night for students organised by Maryborough Arts Council to recognise the film making talents of high school students in the Fraser Coast area.
“My teacher, Mr Gunn entered my two films,” Brittni said.
“Mr Gunn was actually a teacher at Mundubbera a few years ago.
“I was thrilled to receive six of the nine awards for the evening.”
Brittni won best screenplay, best editing, best film, best director, best music and sound design and best special effects.
“And two of the people in my film won best actor and best actress,” Brittni said, adding she loved making films and had no idea theywere as good as judges said.“There was a very interesting reaction from the audience when Brightly (my film about depression) was screened. Everyone in the theatre was dead silent,” she said.
“Even when it finished, therewas like a sigh from some people and then a loud applause rolled in. “It was very emotional.”
Brittni said she intended to keep making films that inspired and encouraged.
