FIVE pupils from a Newport high school turned their hands to producing and directing a film last week, as they took part in a project aimed at improving museums for young people.
Organised by the Kids in Museum charity, which aims to make museums more family-friendly, Bethan Proctor, 16, Amelia Davidson, 15, Bronwyn Satterly, 16, Max Dupe, 16, and Leo Jackaman, 15, who all attend Duffryn High School, spent two days at Newport Museum filming a movie on what they like and dislike about museums.
Filmed in Newport and Wrexham, the resulting piece will then be distributed to museums across the country by Easter.
Charity director Dea Birkett said:“We are all about finding ways of making museums attractive to young people, as much as the shopping centre or sporting events,” she said.
“This is a short film, not dull or boring, it is the teenagers saying, ‘This is what we want from museums.’”
