Creative media students from Telford College were treated to a masterclass in the art of film lighting when a team of experts visited the campus.

Screen and Film School, which has spent the last 15 years turning passionate film-makers into industry professionals, delivered a lighting workshop.

Level three students Josh Powles and Callum Wiggin were among those at the workshop, and said it had definitely given them a greater understanding of the industry


Josh, 19, a former Telford Priory School student from Donnington Wood said: “My dream job is to be a cinematographer, so knowing how lighting can change the mood and tone of a scene or shot is really interesting and important to know.”

Callum, 18, from Brookside, a former Abraham Darby student, added: “This workshop has massively helped me, as I plan to attend Screen and Film School in the future.

“I really enjoyed the workshop, and experimenting with lighting has greatly developed my understanding of the aspects of film school.”

Andy Turner, head of creative and music at Telford College, said: “It’s important for our students to learn from industry specialists, so we were delighted to welcome the Screen and Film School team.

“They carried out a lighting techniques workshop, and also gave students some valuable information about the type of courses they have on offer.

“And this event was only part one – part two will involve us going to visit their Manchester campus on a day trip very soon.”
