Blazing a trail in Bellingham
Children from Bellingham Middle School have recently premiered their film "Take the Lead" to much acclaim. The film is the culmination of two projects funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and is the result of a collaboration between the Heritage Centre in Bellingham and Bellingham Middle School. The children involved worked closely with filmmakers Marc McKiernan and Vicky Jones from Haltwhistle Film Project. Children planned, and shot the film, and the editing group also learnt how to use some special effects during post-production.
