International success for Max’s documentary


Havering Colleges Sixth Form TV and Film student Max Roach has had international festival success with a documentary titled ‘London Through The Lens’.

Max, formerly from Abbs Cross Academy, shot the short five minute film about photographer Craig Baker and his work around the streets of London.

The film is a positive look at life in London and the people who live, work or travel there. It also documents how Craig goes about his daily job and conveys his passion for everything about the UK’s capital city.

As well as being chosen for local arts and film festivals and the INTO Films monthly competition, the documentary has also been invited into the SLO Festival in California, BeOpFilm Fest in New York and the Ufa Youth Film Festival in Russia! 

Max’s tutor Holly Whelan said she was proud of his film success.

Max said: “I am thrilled with how my documentary has been received and to have it shown at these international festivals is amazing. I want to thank Holly for helping me create this piece. Obviously every bit of feedback goes 1,000 miles and I’m certain that without her essential feedback, the film wouldn’t have had the success it has received.”
