‘Cyber Bully’ Shortlisted for Award


‘Cyber Bully’, the film made with pupils and peer support from Ogmore School, was shortlisted for the Best Fiction award at the Zoom Cymru 2008 Film Festival last week. Valley and Vale drama and film workers attended the Zoom Film Festival at the Muni Arts Centre, Pontypridd, along with 16 pupils and staff from Ogmore School. Seeing their film on the big screen was really exciting.

Two pupils from the film-making team, Connor and Kristen introduced the film and described the process of devising, scripting and filming Cyber Bully. This was a great event, providing recognition of the hard work from the whole group. One of the teachers described the event as “a wonderful occasion”. We are delighted that future plans are underway for another drama and film collaboration between Valley and Vale and Ogmore School.
