6000 extras at Gorleston beach - and we were a part of it!


Year 10 and 12 Film Studies students were a part of the record-breaking number of film extras used in the new Danny Boyle feature film written by Richard Curtis. We were lucky enough to be directed by the man himself! Four year 10 students also went behind the scenes to be scanned for 3D rendering to be used as CGI members of the crowd. Spot Mrs Nichols, Mr Nutt and Ms Gray at 22 seconds in!
