The finishing touches are being made to two new films for Melbourn Village College.

A short insight into life at college should be available to view on the website before Christmas while an extended version to show to parents, pupils and prospective pupils and on the screens around the school will be up and running in the new year.

Both films are being made by two former Melbourn students, Rachel Clarkstone and Tom Norris, who, with Jack Joy from Harlow, set up As A Button Productions in Shrepreth two years ago.

It is their first venture into educational film-making although they have worked on projects at the UK Festival Awards and other commissions.

Tom, now 24, said: “For me the strangest thing has been going back and calling teachers who taught me by their first names.

“Being allowed in the staff room was weird too.

“But it’s also been really good filming in a school for the first time.
