Congratulations to Year 11 student, James Iatrou, who received a Highly Commended Award for his Short Film in the Senior Category of the Woollahra Youth Photographic & Short Film Prize. This Prize is highly competitive, with entrants from schools across the Eastern Suburbs.
This short film originally commenced for James last year in the filmmaking process for WaveFest, and sadly, due to COVID-19, James’ film was not able to be presented. So once the opportunity of the Woollahra Prize arose, there was the perfect opportunity for James to finish, make final edits, and submit his short film.
James’ short film, alongside the help of younger brother Constantine, is drawn from classic films and pop culture films. It plays out the storyline of two brothers making it in the film industry. And again, congratulations for James on all of his efforts in creating such an interesting film.
We hope you enjoy viewing the short film The Future is Yours by James Iatrou.
All photographs and films are on display at Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf. You can also participate in the People’s Choice Awards for other students who have entered from Waverley College, by following the link below:
