Chester teenager Alice Spall has been a member of Minerva Youth Theatre for two years and has always been interested in film-making. Earlier this year she submitted an entry to the 9/11 Schools Programme’s National Film-making competition with the theme of ‘How Would You Keep the Memory of 9/11 Alive in the UK?’. Her entry won and she is about to be jetting off on an amazing four day trip to New York as her prize. Films were judged on their originality, clarity, knowledge and inspiration and Alice’s film clearly displays all four of those characteristics.
Minerva Youth Theatre are no strangers to Alice’s film-making talents as she created a brand new piece of stop-motion animation as part of a drama piece that she co-devised and directed for her Silver Arts Award in the Summer Term.
Minerva Youth Theatre director Steph Brocken said ‘we are so proud of Alice’s achievement in winning a national competition and we look forward to seeing more of her film-making skills this year at Youth Theatre’.
