Net gain for youngsters

A NORTH Tyneside girl was among a group of budding movie-makers given the job of producing a film for their school’s website.

Pupils at Gosforth’s Westfield Independent School for Girls have been making a short promotional film to go on its home page.

Among the students taking part is Fariea Hussain, of North Shields.

Gateshead-based YourFilm has been giving the youngsters tips on sound and lighting, as well as shooting and editing footage.

Claire Lloyd, the school’s head of ICT, said: “When YourFilm offered their help and advice, we jumped at the chance.

“They were fantastic with the girls. They brought the whole thing to life and really got them enthused about the project.”
