A FORMER newspaper photographer is one of the organisers of an event for budding movie-makers.
Alan Trow, who worked for the Hereford Times’ sister paper the Kidderminster Shuttle, has helped arrange a weekend of master classes, screenings, question and answer sessions and the blowing-up of trains at Hay on Film.
It is the inaugural event of the Hay Film School at Hay-on- Wye. Oscar winners and nominees are among filmmakers preparing to descend on the town for the event.
As Hay-on-Wye launches into festival mode, the event for film-makers and buffs will give movie lovers the opportunity to meet up and learn from producers, directors, cinematographers and experts in the many crafts that contribute to films.
Hay on Film, from May 25 to 27, will feature director and screen writer Bruce Robinson (Withnail and I, The Killing Fields and The Rum Diary), cinematographer Doug Milsome (Full Metal Jacket and The Shining), producer Nigel Ashcroft (The Tree of Life) and Revel Guest, executive producer of War Horse.
There will also be workshops and demonstrations including make-up designer Claire Williams sharing the secrets of creating cinema blood and gore and special effects man Tom Harris creating explosions and action effects.
The event takes place in Richard Booth's Bookshop Cinema, Hay.
