Film-makers Highlight Dangers Of Driving

Friday 24th May 2019

Creative media students at Pembrokeshire College have highlighted the ‘Fatal 5’ of driving.

The students were invited to create short original films depicting the dangers of drink and drugs, speed, carelessness, lack of seatbelts and mobile phones – the five main causes of road traffic collisions and injuries in Wales.

Their videos were entered into a competition run by the College together with the road safety team at Pembrokeshire County Council.

The winning film was produced by Simon Latham. Pierre Dizon and Megan Stanley were commended as runners-up.

All three videos will be used during this year’s summer anti-drink/drug drive campaign and during the Christmas anti-drink/drug drive campaign

Denys Bassett Jones, Creative Media Course Leader at Pembrokeshire College, said: “I am delighted about the results of this project. Live brief competitions are an important feature of the Creative Media programme at Pembrokeshire College and the students have produced some powerful and engaging videos”.

Pembrokeshire County Council Road Safety Officer Kirstie-Anne Donoghue, praised the creativity of the students’ films and said they were a highly effective way to get across the message of the Fatal 5 campaign.
