The Harvey Centre’s first movie awards night is a huge success

THE Harvey Centre’s first ever Movie Awards Night was a roaring success, with local students from D.S. Productions taking the top award of the night. The event took place in the centre’s Cineworld Cinema on Thursday 29th November, with a red carpet and photo opportunities for all to enjoy.

The evening was attended by an incredible 150 local students, family and members of the public – all eager to see who out of the eight teams of competing students from Harlow College would be crowned best film-maker. The genre of the production was ‘horror’ and each team, made up of around six students, was responsible for the entire production process, which is an incredible learning experience. The winning video from D.S. Productions was called Dead Silence.

On the evening of Thursday 29th November the eight films were screened at the cinema in front of a panel of judges including Bryan Young (Centre Manager, The Harvey Centre), Richard Crabtree (Lecturer, Harlow College) and Red Imlah (Cineworld) and the 150 attending audience. After the eight films were screened, an original film about Harlow College and a special message from MP Robert Halfon was also screened. It was a difficult decision for the panel but D.S. Productions excelled across the board to win the top prize, which was presented by Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre. The winning group included Director – Jessica Clive, Producer – Nathan Catton, Cameraman – Stephen Clark, Editor – Ellen Brignull and Sound Operator – Niamh Peppiatt.

The winning team won a studio hire session from Flirt PR, a voucher from Legends Hairdressers for make-up and hair styling, and three days of green screen studio hire from Phoenix Resources. Catering on the night was provided by Burger Priest, who provided a sensational spread of delicious food for everyone to enjoy.

Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says; “I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that got involved in our movie night. The standard was very high and you could see how much work went into the production of these very innovative and inventive films. We were thrilled with the level of attendance we had and are considering holding the event again next year. A special thanks to Cineworld for letting the event take place in their theatre and Burger Priest for supplying the delicious food, as well as Flirt PR, Legends Hairdressers and Phoenix Resources for supplying the prize.”

Delta Muntean, Assistant Academy Manager at Harlow College says; “The Media teachers continue to utilise their industry contacts extremely well to develop very imaginative ‘live’ project briefs. The Horror Project has inspired and ensured the learners had a great opportunity to produce a wide range of outstanding creative and original work that was showcased on the big screen at Cineworld Harlow. I am very proud of the hard work the Media teaching staff, students, Cineworld and The Harvey Centre staff have put in to make the event a huge success.”
