Students given sporting chance to make documentary

Young filmmakers are making a documentary following the creation of wire mesh sports-themed sculptures.

Five creative film and moving image students at Cleveland College of Art & Design have been filming artist Michelle Castle working on 15 sculptures of male figures playing sport.

The works of art were commissioned by Hartlepool Borough Council as part of a campaign to get more young men in the town playing sport.

One of the students making the film, Daniel D’arcy, said: “This is the first documentary that I’ve been involved with and as well as real-time filming we will also be using time lapse film to show how the sculptures evolve.”
