A few weeks ago we found out that we were nominated for an award at the Fís film festival 2011. We made a film about a tiger bank robbery. Our film was called Job Done.
We received a message saying that the awards were being held in The Helix Dublin on the 16th of November and we had to be there at 12 o’clock. Everyone was excited. Patrick, Nicola, Toni, Orla, Rachel, Mollie and I were the actors in the film. Marie, Rebecca, Amy, Enda, Justin, Conal and Thomas helped with the costumes and props. James was the camera man.
The day finally came to go to the Helix. We left the school at 8 o’clock. It was a long journey but it was fun. We arrived at 12 o’clock and we were greeted by a lady who was going to interview us. Then a camera man from elev8, a TV programme for kids, came and he wanted to interview us too! He told us that we could be on TV. After we were interviewed we got our picture taken and headed into the auditorium where all the awards were to be given out. We sat down and watched a magician doing tricks.
We weren’t long sitting down when the awards ceremony began. Colm Flynn was presenter and Anne White gave out the awards. We waited and waited until our school was finally called out. We won the award for the best Horror Film. A small clip of our film was shown and then Colm asked us questions about our movie before we received our award.
At the end of the ceremony Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland, came and gave a speech. After Michael D. Higgins’ speech we all left the Helix and got the bus back to our school. Fís was a great experience and I’d love to do it again. Here is a video of our trip.
