Former Belper School pupil Louis Vella has achieved his Gold Arts Award from Trinity College, London. The Gold Award is a prestigious achievement which takes a committed input to the Arts over a sustained period of time.
Louis began the work when he was still at Belper School, when he helped shoot and edit a film designed to discourage under-age drinking with the Derbyshire Police.
This was one of a number of related projects and he took the skill to a new level when he wrote, directed, rehearsed, filmed and edited his short film ‘Ouija’, which became one of the assignments that earned him his award.
Louis is still in training but would like to work in the film industry in the future. Meanwhile, he is completing a number of freelance projects.
