Hollywood may be a little way off, but the creative cameraman has high hopes that he could make it in the film industry as his cinematic career blossoms.

Post-16 student Dale Pendlebury shot The Final Breath using fellow students for his cast.

Described as ‘a bit of a strange story’ – with the tagline “Things Are Never As They Seem” – the short film was a huge hit with audiences at its premiere a few weeks ago.

It proved so popular that there was a second showing the following night.

Watched by a collective audience of 600 over the two evenings – including college principal Tony Alexander, the cast, crew and family members – the film raised £226 for Cancer Research UK, a charity “close” to Dale’s family.

“The two nights were a massive success, and we all enjoyed it,” said Dale. “We got an amazing reaction – and good feedback – from the audience.”

The cast featured more than 40 Year 9-Post 16 college students, aged from 14-18, plus several teachers. “The film is a bit of a strange story,” said Dale. “It’s about a girl who plans a prom and there’s a psychotic person who goes a bit crazy because she denies him. And then everything goes wrong at the prom and she tries to survive.”

So far The Final Breath has only been shown at the college, but it may reach a larger audience soon when it’s screened online on Dale’s YouTube channel. Meanwhile, the cameraman is currently working on filming two weddings and a three-part film series for college.

If that goes well, he aims to ‘keep going’ in the film industry.

“I’d like to make my own business out of it,” he said, “so film, music videos, filming weddings, short films… getting in to it any way that I can.”
