A FILM created by a Wigan schoolgirl will be shown at cinemas across the country after scooping a top prize.
Chloe Wynne, a 16-year-old Year 11 student from Ince, beat off national competition by researching, designing and creating an original campaign to promote legitimate film and TV content – both at home and in the cinema – and discourage illegal downloads.
Her prize for winning the Be Creative: Be a Screen Champion national competition run by Film Education, is an iPad and her School, Bolton School Girls’ Division has received four iMacs, a digital stills camera and a digital video camera.
Chloe’s campaign, which targeted people of her own age, was presented in a 30-second filmed animation plus a 10-second ‘teaser’ cut. She said: “My campaign was aimed at younger people who prefer to download films for free, and in doing so do not realise they are destroying the industry.”
Mrs Hadjigeorgiou, who runs film and media competitions in the school’s English department, said: “Chloe has obvious creative flair and a real talent for working in this medium.”
Film Education is a charity supported by the UK Film Industry and promotes the use of film within the curriculum. Chloe’s film will be shown at cinemas during National Film Week.
The film will also be sent to the film studios in Los Angeles.
