West Hatch High School holds 'Oscar' night
West Hatch High School hosted its own 'Oscar' evening to celebrate the success, creativity and dedication of Year 12 and 13 Film and Media Studies students.
Students arrived along a red carpet before being transported into the Oscar-themed drama studio.
The evening - dedicated to students who had produced music videos, thriller opening sequences, storyboards and screenplays - was an opportunity for students to see their work and was also an opportunity for their work to be acknowledged within several different categories.
They ranged from best cinematography, most original music video and most improved student.
Students took their seats, with popcorn in hand, and waited for the presenters - the school's Head of Media Studies, Andriani Georgiou, and Media teacher Mariana Miller - who handed out the Oscar trophies.
Each award consisted of different nominees before the winner was announced.
The audience also witnessed an array of montage images to demonstrate why each production was nominated, before the winner was revealed.
