Oscar Nominee and BAFTA winner visit Reading schools

As I said on Monday we had a great visit from Duncan Bruce, BAFTA winning producer, Poss Kondeatis (Until The River Runs Red) and Oscar nominated director and Student Academy Award winner, Tanel Toom (The Confession)

Well the visit was a great success, the children loved the film that was shown - and rather excitingly they were the first children to see it, as it had only been completed 2 days earlier.   

I went along to Wilson Primary School, Geoffrey Field Junior School as they had invited me to join the visit and I both learnt a lot and enjoyed myself.  There were plenty of questions and the children seemed really interested in what was involved in film making, along with the inevitable questions "do you know anyone famous?" (Geoffrey Rush met with blank looks until Duncan explained he was the baddy in Pirates of the Carribean!)
 Here's a picture of us with some of the children that will be in either the Midweek or the Chronicle:
