Saffron Screen hosted two workshops, led by tutor and filmmaker Ryd Cook, to teach young people how to make super-hero movies and create a one-minute film, all while picking up camera skills.

County High student Hope-Hero Ley, who volunteers at Saffron Screen, went to the second event. She said she had “a great time” putting together a one-minute movie.

“It has been really fun,” said the 17-year-old. “I really enjoy helping out Saffron Screen and I think it is brilliant they are doing something a bit different.”

Hana Mallet, marketing manager of Saffron Screen, said: “The film workshops were a great success, giving youngsters the opportunity to be a super-hero for a day and learn professional film-making skills along the way.

“We have had fantastic feedback from the students and look forward to showing the films on our big screen this autumn.”
