THEMES

GEORGE ABBOT SCHOOL, Guildford, Surrey
"Factory Overload"

    Welcome to the G.A.S factory of the future, where individualism is extracted and girls are cloned to conform to social uniformity. Unique personality has been removed and the aim to look, act and move like society?s ?Icons? is enforced. It is only when the ?Icons? revolt that we see a factory overload.

KING ALFRED'S COMMUNITY AND SPORTS COLLEGE, Wantage, Oxfordshire
"Fiction to Fact"

    Current day society breathes fear and destruction amongst the streets. Gun crime is here, it invades the population, destroying lives and families. Our story tells of happier times, fun and parties. It remembers deep love forged between two people, then lost in one moment of terror. Gun crime brings fear, and the insurmountable loss of one precious emotion; LOVE.............

LIPSON COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Plymouth, Devon
"On The Edge"

    Stretch is the new lad in school and life isn't easy for him. The school is already divided by two rival crews and when Stretch gets involved with a girl from the other side things get nasty. Too many young people take the wrong path in life; it doesn't have to be this way.

THE ANGMERING SCHOOL, Angmering, West Sussex
"The Boy in a White Room"

    He hasn't spoken for three days,
    The words almost choking him with their hostility and accusation,
    The walls echo with unheard laughter and mindless whispers,
    But he cannot bring himself to escape back into sleep,
    Based on a poem, this piece explores how the boy becomes a prisoner of the white room, this white intoxicating environment that?s keeping him captive.

QUEEN MARY'S COLLEGE, Basingstoke, Hampshire
"SOLDIER 7823"

    Men lose their identities when they join an army. In the eyes of their Sergeants they are no longer humans, they're just soldiers ready to battle. Every soldier has their own story and have all left loved ones behind, but no one cares, they are just a number now. SOLDIER 7823 could be any of the soldiers you meet tonight

SANDOWN HIGH SCHOOL, Sandown, Isle of Wight
"The Hidden Institution since the Dawn of Civilisation"

    We are offering an overview of slavery around the world and through history. The black Africans who were sold, the prisoners of war who were forced to build the Burma Thailand railways, and despite slavery being abolished in 1833, throughout our modern world young girls are forced into prostitution while children work in sweatshops producing goods for the Western world.

ST GEORGE'S SCHOOL, Newport, Isle of Wight
"Everyone's a Winner"

    No matter who you are, where you come from in the world, if you are black, white, rich or poor it's the taking part that matters and everyone's a winner.

THE ROMSEY COMMUNITY SCHOOL, Romsey, Hampshire
"Chasing Expression"

    The theft of an idea inspires a chase through avenues of influence. Watch the idea evolve as 'Expression' reveals an alternative direction to 'Inspiration'. These two mischievous characters leap through ideas of the subconscious, twisting and turning between influences and experiences of their journey. Watch the story play out and see that our thoughts really can 'transport us away.'
