A YOUNG filmmaker has won three awards for his work.

Jack Moulton, 18, from Hall Rise, Sudbury, won three “Colins”, the Colchester Institute’s equivalent to the Oscars, at their end-of-year screening.

He claimed the Best Final Major Project, Best Screenplay and Best Director awards for his spoof documentary Late for the Sky.

Jack said: “I was delighted to win. It was quite unexpected, I certainly didn’t think I’d win three awards.”

Late for the Sky is about a director’s troubles with his writer.

“It’s partly based on my experiences at college but also things like The Office,” said Jack. “It is my kind of satire and is very self-aware.”

Jack’s dad Nick Moulton said: “It was nice to sit there in the auditorium, it’s one of those moments you don’t get to repeat very often.”

Jack, who lists Paul Thomas Anderson and Stanley Kubrick among his influences, will begin studying for a degree in film production at Hertfordshire University in September.
