Labib Hassian and Oludamola Ayeni, from Seven Kings High School, introduced the work produced over the past year by the Year 12 students at the BFI Southbank on Friday as part of Adobe Youth Voices.

Woodbridge High School’s Laura Darker and Freddie Lee showed work by Year 8 students at the school, while Lauren Hodge, Hasnat Raza, Liam Phelan, Hunnana Tariq and Nazlin Herbert, from Redbridge College, introduced work by the music and media students.

Nazlin, who also sang at the event, said: “I really enjoyed taking part in Adobe Youth Voices and it was an amazing opportunity to present my work as well as perform to such a big audience.

“Seeing it shown on the screen at the BFI has made me want to make more films and music videos, and also to get them shown.”
