Lachlan Sheehan has been selected for the ACG Yoobee Creative Excellence award. This award is for the top performing student who attended the Film Production Holiday Programme. The award recognises students who show tremendous potential in the creative industry.
Lachlan said, “I’ve always been interested in the film industry. I have my own YouTube Channel and make videos for me and my mates.”
Although Lachlan was aware of the course, it was only with the encouragement of Mrs Schott at the Mount Hutt College Gateway Programme, that he signed up for it.
The course included writing scripts, directing, special effects, camera work and editing. Lachlan said, “I was really interested in learning to use a proper camera and got to be cameraman on the short film we made. The most interesting part for me though was editing the movie, using the latest software.
I had great fun and made new friends, learned loads and am going to do another 3 day course during the next school holidays. If anyone is nervous about doing a similar course, like I was, they should just do it.”
