Kinlochleven girls in film final
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
