Budding movie-makers from across the year groups recently took part in the Drama Department’s iMovie Competition.

Pupils were set the task of creating a short film inspired by this year’s theme Hope. There were some impressive entries submitted by Hamptonians especially given the difficulty of filming during lockdown. Boys were commended for their inventive ideas, excellent use of music and special effects, and the overall quality of their films. The submissions featured anything from aspiring jugglers to LEGO minifigures, with some films addressing key historic events such as the Chernobyl disaster, whilst others told the stories of sports fans who miss attending matches.

Mrs Jo James, Head of Drama, praised the Hamptonians for their creative films:

We have really loved watching all of them and have been impressed with the time and effort that Hamptonians have spent on producing their films! It was also really lovely to see all the different interpretations of the theme Hope and the variety of different filming and editing styles. Congratulations to our winners and runners up!
