Blundell's pupils lights up film awards
8:00am Monday 13th January 2014 in Devon
BLUNDELL'S School pupil Clym Montgomery has been celebrating after winning two awards at a film challenge.
Clym won two categories in the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) Science Film Challenge and was runner-up in three others with his film, 'What happens if you take off a space helmet on the moon?'
Twenty-six teams or individuals from around the country took part in the challenge to make a short accurate film on an aspect of science in an engaging way.
Clym's film won the most entertaining film and best animation categories and was runner up in cinematography, best explanation and best overall independently produced movie.
The mostly animated film concludes that an astronaut would be unconscious within six seconds of taking off his helmet and shows some of the unpleasant side effects of doing so.
Clym was awarded trophies for winning the two categories and also received £150 worth of Amazon vouchers.
He was inspired to make the film following a physics lesson about space.
