Last updated at 15:18, Friday, 22 March 2013
Tricks of the trade were revealed to enthusiastic media students by a film industry expert who’s worked on a series of blockbusters.
Mally Chung, a Carlisle-based location and unit manager visited students at William Howard School in Brampton.
Mr Chung has worked on high-profile films including the latest James Bond film Skyfall.
The pupils were given tips by Mr Chung and asked him how to break into the business.
Media teacher Sarah Ledger told The Cumberland News: “The students were absolutely enthralled and it was very relevant.
“He was answering lots of questions about special effects and camera focussing. We try as often as we can do to events like these and it was very valuable.”
Mr Chung is from Carlisle and an honorary fellow of the University of Cumbria.
He worked on Skyfall as a unit location manager, which involved ensuring the spectacular chase scenes went to plan.
One of his tasks involved deploying 130 security guards along a stretch of train track.
He also helped find locations for Steven Spielberg’s War Horse, and workedon Sherlock Holmes, The Damned United and Quantum of Solace.
