Media Students Go on Location

16 Oct 2013

Media students went on location in Shropshire to film documentaries for their coursework project.

The students made three films, inspired by the Tough Mudder charity challenge.

In one, they looked at the event through the eyes of a soldier, asking if the challenge was genuinely tough.

In the second, they looked at the Tough Mudder charity and asked why the Government did not do more to support soldiers.

In the final film called 'The Good, the Bad and the Soldier', they explored society's attitudes to soldiers, asking if these had changed over time, and how media and Government influences the way in which soldiers are regarded.

Teacher Julie Norley said: "The decision to go on location was a real success. The students responded brilliantly and produced some very impressive work."

Tough Mudder is described as a 'hard core, 12 mile assault course'. All proceeds go to Help for Heroes.
