Leamington film students get experience behind the camera

Leamington Editorial 14th Nov, 2023   0

FILM students from Leamington College have been getting some experience behind the camera.

Luke Sloan, Maya Taylor and Charlie Cooke got to work behind the scenes in the recent production of the short film Baby on Board.

The 15-minute film was shot at Leamington eatery Lina’s Place in July and follows two strangers, a policeman and young father who meet late at night in the café.

The film’s supernatural script was written by acclaimed writer Stephen Volk of Ghostwatch fame and directed by local screenwriter and Leamington College learning mentor Andrew David Barker.




The production drew on creative talents from Warwickshire and the West Midlands, with the three students working within a crew of ten and the drama portrayed on screen by three Birmingham-based actors.

The team also received help from PC Sergeant Thomas of Warwickshire Police, who provided a local police car for use in the production.


Filming over two nights, Charlie served as a runner, Luke worked as a sound mixer and Maya took the role of assistant camera operator alongside Kenilworth cameraman Tom Williams.
