Sky and The National Film and Television School teamed up to arrange for John Lee to come to Sky and talk to the young Bolder Academy students this half-term.
You might be thinking; Who is John Lee? Well, think Aliens, Harry Potter, Star Wars and Fantastic Mr Fox. John has worked on all these movies and many more as a model-maker and prop-maker. He took time out from his busy schedule teaching Post-Graduate students at The National Film and Television School to visit Sky and tell his story to the Year 7 Students.
Almost 100 students and their families made the trip to Sky to listen to him and were then treated to latest instalment of the Star Wars saga – The Last Jedi in the cinema.
John said afterwards “If one person in the audience thought about model-making as a profession and went home to find out more then it’s been a success.”
Don’t worry John I think you inspired a whole year group!
