A group of 14-19 year olds I've been working with in Worthing have just scooped a big win at the FirstLight Movie awards in London.
Their short animation 'Happy Cloud' won BEST COMEDY at the event hosted by Dick and Dom.
The group, Worthing Youth Media, go the UK Film Council funding in 2008 to complete 3 films over a 12 month timescale. Alongside Happy Cloud, they produced a 10 minute social realist drama called 'Teenager', and an 8 minute zombie movie called 'Outbreak!', which was nominated for Best Drama.
Please see my secret filming of the event (sorry FirstLight)
