Three pupils, Caspar, Maks and Ambrose, have created the latest film, ‘Romance with Aliens’.

Miss Croucher says of the project, “The boys first worked on coming up with a film idea, then concept art and story boarding, character and set designs, and finally thinking about camera shots and positions before animating their film. The film took 9 weeks to make. An amazing amount of teamwork went into the film, and I think they should be extremely pleased. I believe they are now busy working on a sequel….”
