Kin­lochleven girls in film fi­nal

The Oban Times - - News -

FOUR Kin­lochleven High School pupils have been se­lected as fi­nal­ists in the Bank of Eng­land’s film com­pe­ti­tion ‘Bank, Cam­era, Ac­tion’.

Sec­ond year pupils So­phie MacKin­non, Fiona Janzen, Mar­ley Al­ston and Emma Vind di­rected, filmed and starred in a 95-sec­ond film telling the story of ‘A day in the life of a new Fiver’.

The com­peti­ton co­in­cided with the Bank of Eng­land re­leas­ing its new plas­tic £ 5 notes last year.

The girls, aged 12 and 13, found out they would be fi­nal­ists on Jan­uary 13.

Mar­ley said: ‘It’s very ex­cit­ing.’ Fiona added: ‘ We didn’t ex­pect to be fi­nal­ists.’

Head teacher Rebecca Machin said: ‘The fact we’re in the fi­nal is re­ally cool, in a UK-wide com­pe­ti­tion I think it’s fab.’

If the girls are judged over­all win­ners, their prize will be a trip to Lon­don. To see their film, head to
