Bexhill College media production students recently gained valuable work experience by producing a video for the National Trust.
They were given privileged access to local properties Alfriston Clergy House, Bateman’s, Birling Gap, Bodiam Castle and Scotney Castle. The students filmed on location at the inspiring properties, interviewing some of the Trust’s staff and volunteers, and then edited and produced a video showcasing the National Trust’s work.
Sarah Brown, Volunteering and Community Involvement Consultant at the National Trust said: “We are delighted with the video created for us by the excellent Bexhill College students. The video is a far better standard than we could have hoped for when we started out on this project. It was a pleasure to work with enthusiastic and conscientious young people and I have been hugely impressed by their skills, experience and hard work.”
The students worked in teams at each of the properties, with 16 students involved in total.
Any young people interested in film making can find out more information about the BTEC Extended Diploma in Media Production starting in September 2014, which is equivalent to three A Levels, via www.bexhillcollege.ac.uk.
