It might not be the Oscars, but for one group of students in Swindon, a national film award has taken them one step closer.
Pupils from Isambard Community School brought home a First Light Film Award for 'Best Documentary', after a star-studded ceremony in Leicester Square on Monday night.
And they weren't the only stars either.
The First Light Movie Awards are held each year and attract all kinds of celebrities - this year including Orlando Bloom, Kevin Spacey and Stephen Fry.
The award-winning documentary, 'The Child and Me', told a story of their transition from primary to secondary education, with the help of Create Studio's Mobile Media production team.
