Berkshire - Video is the medium, safety is the message

29th January 2010 at 00:00

Secondary school pupils in Bracknell are being invited to enter a film competition with the chance to win a digital camcorder for their school.

The winning video will be shown on the 10 community TV screens across the borough.

Students and young people are invited to submit a 30-second silent video on DVD with a crime reduction or community safety message of their choice.

Last year, Ranelagh School's digital animation club won the competition with a film about knife crime. The pupils were presented with their prize by Robin Gibb from the Bee Gees. Their short film featured a picture of a skull being stabbed, with the words Be Cool, Not a Fool. Knives Take Lives.

Iain McCracken, of Bracknell Forest Council, said: "Although we live in a low crime area, young people are concerned about safety in their communities. This competition gives them a chance to make a film about what's important and relevant to them."

Ranelagh's video can be viewed on the council's YouTube site. HW.
