Capturing the moment: Year 7 students William Worsfold, Tom Nethersole and Edward Uniacke are excited to have been selected in the top 10 for a national video competition.

Capturing that picture-perfect moment on video is no hard task for three Goulburn Valley Grammar School Year 7 students.

Tom Nethersole, William Worsfold and Edward Uniacke, all 13, are passionate about film and their talents have helped them be among the top 10 in a national video competition.

Videos for Change is a school-based challenge that highlights social issues and is a joint initiative of Channel 10 and High Resolves.

Tom said the trio first heard about the challenge from one of the teachers and decided to enter the competition by creating a video focused on the impact of cyber bullying.

‘‘It’s pretty much a boy telling the audience about the side effects of cyber bullying and how just one click ruined his entire reputation with the school and his family,’’ Tom said.

Tom, Edward and William spent several weeks working on the film, which they edited in iMovie.

By September the video was finished, running at exactly one minute.

All agreed they were a bit nervous to find out whether they had won or not, but the experience had been a lot of fun.

Tom, Edward and William are now looking at their future video projects.

Tom recently finished his first short movie Losing Love, which is a true story about how his mother died.

William and Edward were also involved in creating this film, which was shot across two different locations in Greater Shepparton and is available to watch at Tom’s YouTube channel Tom Nethersole.

Channel 10 is set to announce the winner of the Videos for Change competition some time this week on The Project.

The Project can be watched from 6.30pm on WIN in Victoria.
