Northbrook MET Creative Media Practice (Moving Image) degree students had the amazing opportunity to film Jo Brand for her new role in Worthing Theatre’s pantomime Snow White, which opens at the beginning of December.
Jo, who plays the mirror in the production, visited the West Durrington campus, where the students produced, filmed and edited a video of her, which will be incorporated into the pantomime.
Kate Mapes, Moving Image degree Course Leader, said, “It’s great that students get the opportunity to work on professional jobs. This gives them a real insight in how to work with a celebrity client in the outside world.”
Nick George, Artistic Director for leading pantomime production company Paul Holman Associates (PHA), said, “The students at Northbrook MET were a pleasure to work with. It was great to go into such a professional and well equipped facility, with the students on top of every aspect of the project. PHA would be very happy to work alongside the students on future productions.”
A series of collaborations with Worthing Theatres has been developed in the last few years by Level 3 Theatre Arts Course Leader Sadie Anderson. Projects have included the creation of a large scale Cinderella slipper and a Tinkerbell figurine.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs opens at the Pavilion Theatre, Worthing from Friday 1st December 2017 until Monday 1st January 2018. Tickets are available from the Worthing Theatres box office on 01903 206 206 and online at worthingtheatres.co.uk.
