A group of young people have filmed a short horror film at a workshop at Barnes Film Academy.

15 children aged 8-14 took part in the half term workshop. The film was shot in various locations around Barnes, including the Castelnau Community Centre and Castelnau Recreation Ground. Courses are designed to encourage young people to work together, share ideas, explore new skills, and see their results on the big screen.

Samuel Cullis, founder and course director, said: "Horror is an incredibly popular genre of film, but scripting, shooting and editing a film in 3 days is always a tough task. I was amazed by how absorbed the students were in the whole process and how dedicated they were to achieving a continuity of style and learning how to use special effects in post production. It was an exhausting few days, but the results were well worth all the hard work."

The film will be showed in November at the Olympic Cinema, in Church Road. Samuel Cullis is also head of media at Harrodian School and is the man behind the recent highly successful Barnes Film Festival, celebrating the next generation of filmmakers.
