Donna’s afternoon tea for project funds

A former pupil of Balnamore Primary and Dalriada schools, is holding an afternoon tea in Portballintrae Village Hall, Saturday from 2pm-4pm.

Donna Gage is a student studying Film and TV Production at Westminster University and as part of her course is raising funds for the student production ‘King for a Day’.

‘King for a Day’ is a graduation project and the students have to raise funds to shoot the film. The shooting of the film is currently taking place on location in North West London with a crew of 30.

Donna is Director of Photography on this production. This film will be one of four that will be screened by BAFTA in June.

Graduation films from Westminster University are entered into film festivals over the world.

For the past two years films from Westminster have made the shortlist under ‘Best Foreign Film’ category at the student division of the Academy Awards.

Last year they received the Oscar with ‘For Elsie’. The crew of ‘King for a Day’ have equal expectations of their film.

The crew are currently raising funds for the film shoot.

They have been fundraising through bag packing in supermarkets and are being sponsored by Bentley Priory Nature Reserve in Stanmore, where the main part of the film will be shot.

If you wish to help them achieve their goal you can plan to attend the afternoon cream tea on Saturday 20th.
