Step­ping onto the red car­pet

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Hobson's Choice Extra -

BUD­DING movie stars and pro­duc­ers took to the red car­pet at their school’s an­nual film awards cer­e­mony.

Dogsthorpe Ju­nior School, in Cen­tral Av­enue, Peter­bor­ough held the cer­e­mony last week to mark the end of a project which saw young­sters make their own films to en­ter the Poscars, the city’s ver­sion of the Os­cars.

In the two weeks lead­ing up to the Easter hol­i­days, pupils in all the classes at the school wrote the scripts, made the cos­tumes, filmed and edited their films.

The 12 mini-movies, along­side one made by the school’s teach­ers, were shown at the awards cer­e­mony and seven were cho­sen by a panel of judges to go on to rep­re­sent the school in the Poscars, which will take place in July, and re­ceived awards.

Natalie Al­lan, school IT co­or­di­na­tor, said: “The chil­dren loved it.”
