Alloa Academy films get their world premiere

Following the world premiere at Alloa Academy on the 21st June, we are delighted to bring two short films created with the help of Alloa Academy pupils out on general release.

The first film you can watch below is 'Our Alloa', which highlight some of the special places that make Alloa a great place to live, including RSPB Black Devon Wetlands and Alloa Tower. Pupils from the school also interviewed some of the people who care passionately for these places, and learnt more about the important role Alloa has to play in the Inner Forth, and Scotland's, historic and natural heritage.

'Our Alloa' was made with the help of professional film maker Chas Whatmore, through an IFLI project to encourge more people to be proud of their local area. 

The second film is 'Wetlands Watch', an animation made by Alloa Academy pupils with help from animator Henry Cruickshank. It explains why wetlands like Black Devon are so important to wildlife. 

Well done and thank you to all the pupils, teachers and everyone else who was invovled in making this possible.
