From flying high on the set of Supergirl to experiencing a real-life film premier, the students were given a technicolour experience to remember.
Executive principal of LeAF Academy, Gill Blanshard, said: “Many of our media and performing arts students have dreams and aspirations of making a living in film and TV – and what better place for them to get inspiration from than Hollywood?
“During the trip the students got the chance to experience for real the world of film, television and commercials at their very highest levels.
“The experiences they have gained have not only provided them with an invaluable insight but they have also given them an even more determined drive to succeed.”
After her trip of a lifetime, LeAF student, Alanna Turner, said: “It was an unforgettable experience because we saw so many cultures different to our own.”
And Ella March added: “The workshops were amazing. For example, I directed my own piece in the New York Film Academy which is something I will always remember. It was so exciting.”
Stage and Screen at LeAF Studio is for students aged 14 to 19 who have ambitions to pursue a career in one of the many performing arts industries.
The school combines vocational learning with excellent academic achievement to equip students with the diverse range of skills required in these highly competitive industries.
