TWO young movie-makers have had their film chosen from more than 270 other productions to be shown at a national film festival. Hinchingbrooke School pupils, James Ballard from Brampton and Thibault Jeangout from Graveley, both 15, filmed a six-minute Bond-style adventure which they have called Operation Red Sand. It will be shown at Bradford's National Media Museum on Saturday, October 13 as part of the Co-operative Young Film-Makers Festival. The entry was one of 100 chosen for the two-day festival - all by young film-makers, including entries from schools, youth groups, art groups, colleges and video workshops. James and Thibault did everything themselves, including filming, editing and post production including putting on the sound. They each acted in the film, one as the hero, a retired M16 agent, and the other as an assailant out to kill him in a revenge attack. Filming was done on land near their homes with fight scenes in garages and they enlisted neighbours' children to act as extras. Thibault said the hardest part was editing the film down to the required six minutes.
