Aspiring filmmakers get behind their cameras as zombies take over a Hampshire beauty spot

There was blood and gore as the undead awoke for a series of horror movies by Highbury College students.

Screams echoed across Queen Elizabeth Country Park as more than 30 students went head to head in a zombie filmmaking competition.

The beauty spot was transformed into a post-apocalyptic world similar to that in popular TV series The Walking Dead.

Students were transformed with special affects make-up before groaning and staggering through the countryside along with five eager teams of young cameramen and women.

The teams were competing to create the best short zombie film as part of a competition organised as part of their Creative Media Production qualification.

The competition was organised by Creative Media Production lecturer Kara Hall who accompanied the students to Queen Elizabeth Country Park for the day of filming.

She said: “Our media students have been so impressive during this project!

“They planned the content, carefully producing professional storyboards and all had fantastic, creative ideas.

“On the day they surprised us with just how creative they can be with some even making their own fake bodies!

“It has been a great project and has given the students the chance to experience what it is like filming on location.

“They had great fun and have produced some great films but this is just one of many professional projects they will work on throughout the year!”

Once completed the films will all be uploaded to our YouTube channel where students will compete for the most views.

Creative Media Production is just one of dozens of top creative subjects on offer at Highbury College. For more information about creative courses click here.
