Chrissie Tilney, from Market Weighton, and Ellie Pickering, who hails from Nawton Beadlam, have created ‘Flare and Mortal’ Productions.

The York College students are now the co-founders/creative directors of a short film and collection of photographs based on the work of the late Vogue photographer Peter Lindbergh.

The students said: “Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, we decided to take a huge leap of faith and begin developing our photography and cinematic production company from scratch, with very little money and business experience.

“We were in discussions with a local art gallery and arts centre about displaying our work. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this event has been cancelled until further notice.

“This has, of course, caused much disappointment and is a setback to our blossoming business.”

The students work can now be see via their website.
