Primary 7 pupils at Longniddry Primary in East Lothian have set up their own film production company, with funding from East Lothian Council, to make School Sweet School, which will be premi red at the Edinburgh Filmhouse on April 26.

Pupils have been learning about aspects of film-making from pre-production through to post-production, including scriptwriting, acting, filming, directing, event organisation and marketing. They have also been seeking sponsorship from companies for some of the props.

John Ross, of the education and community services committee, said: "The pupils have been given a wonderful opportunity to experience first hand the process of film production. In addition to the film School Sweet School, they are producing a documentary that follows the process of the film-making.

"They have set up their own production companies, In Your Face film company and Whoopsie documentary productions, and have gained a comprehensive understanding of the creative process."
