Talented young filmmakers have put the finishing touches to their latest production.
Youngsters at the film academy Beacon Hill Arts BFI, who attend a prestigious industry-backed course, have just completed The Ruby of Doom.
The short comedy film, devised and shot on location at Newcastle’s Grade-II listed Civic Centre building, is about a sleepy security guard and his attempts to apprehend a crafty burglar.
Beacon Hill Arts is just one of three film academies in the north east and has been running a series of industry-led workshops in Wallsend since November.
The students, who suffer from learning disabilities and autism, are part of a national scheme to develop the filmmaking aspirations of 16 to 19-year-olds across the UK.
Will Sadler, of Beacon Hill Arts, said: “We have particular experience of supporting young filmmakers with learning disabilities and autism, which enables our film academy to support creative students of all abilities.
“It provides a supportive environment where creativity can thrive and they can share their unique view of the world. We’re really excited about the latest film.”
