OSCAR-winning film editor and ex-student Chris Dickens took time out from his busy schedule to return to Hailsham Community College on Monday (March 14) to run a workshop for potential future film makers.

Chris, who studied film and video at HCC in the 1980s, went on to work professionally in the industry and was the film editor for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and, most famously, won the Oscar for his work on Slumdog Millionaire. He took part in a question and answer session with students and presented his work to the group.

“There is a road from Hailsham to Hollywood and where one has already gone others may follow,” said Gareth Jones, advanced skills Teacher at HCC.
