Victoria Easton, BBC producer, loved the video: the stunning performance of its star, Lucy Tanner; the use of vibrant colour, as well as the chemistry between the characters in the story, who were played by Jack Haine and Lucy Tanner. Lucy said, “We're all overwhelmed about Radio 1 featuring our coursework video. We had no idea when starting the construction to our music video that this is what it would lead to”.  Exciting times!

Lucy is completely believable as the young star of the video because of her precise lip synchronisation, which is a very difficult skill to master. The colours used in the video symbolise the emotions expressed by the characters and Lucy and Jack give truly authentic performances. 

Congratulations to all of the Year 13 students on their hard work and success.
