Creative Media Practice (Moving Image) degree students had the amazing opportunity to film comedian, writer and actress, Jo Brand, for her new role in Worthing Theatre's pantomime Snow White, which opens at the beginning of December.


Jo Brand, who plays the mirror in the production, visited the West Durrington campus, where the students produced, filmed and edited a video of her, which will be incorporated into the pantomime.


Kate Mapes, Course Leader for FdA Moving Image, said, "It's great that students get the opportunity to work on professional jobs. This gives them a real insight in how to work with a celebrity client in the outside world."


This collaboration with Worthing Theatres has been developed in the last few years by Sadie Anderson, who runs the Level 3 Theatre Arts course.


Nick George, Artistic Director for leading pantomime production company Paul Holman Associates (PHA), said, "The students at Northbrook MET were a pleasure to work with. It was great to go into such a professional and well equipped facility, with the students on top of every aspect of the project. PHA would be very happy to work alongside the students on future productions."


Snow White opens on the 1 December and runs until Monday 1 January 2018.
