    Media Oscar Night

    West Hatch High School hosted an Oscar Evening on Thursday 21st April, to celebrate the success, creativity and dedication of Year 12 and 13, Film and Media studies students. Students arrived via a red carpet, which led them into a journey with Superman, before being transported into the Oscar themed drama studio. The evening was dedicated to students, which had produced music videos, thriller opening sequences, storyboards and screenplays. The evening was an opportunity for students to see their work and was also an opportunity for their work to be acknowledged, within several different categories, which ranged from best cinematography, most original music video and most improved student.

    Students took their seats, with their popcorn in their hands and awaited for the presenters to start the evening. Miss Georgiou and Miss Miller were the presenters of the evening and awarded students with Oscar trophies for different categories. In true Oscar spirit, each award consisted of different nominees, before the winner was announced. The audience also witnessed an array of montage images to demonstrate why each production was nominated, before the winner was finally announced.

    And the winners were…

    • Best cinematography within a music video- Molly Emmerson, Claire Golightly and Sara Sheriff “Salvation”
