Film School Students are RTS Craft Award Winners

The RTS West of England Student Awards were announced on Monday this week and . . . (drum roll) . . . our Film School degree students won a handful of Craft Awards.

The Royal Television Society Awards celebrate the very best student films from across the UK, with categories ranging from Factual to Entertainment and Comedy Drama. Boomsatsuma's Film School students picked up five craft awards at the event, acknowledging creative and technical talents behind the following films:

KILLING BUGS - Writing Award to Jack Lee Pitchford.<br/>THE BRISTOL CROCODILE - Writing Award to Lucy Rowe and Teddy Smith.<br/>SUICIDE HEADACHE (shown below) - Sound Award to Tom Foster, and Editing Award to Suleman Aqeel and Leon Lock.<br/>SUNFLOWER - Production Design Award to Dora Pamment.

Freya Billington, Head of boomsatsuma’s Film School, attended the event at Bristol’s Watershed Cinema. With a celebratory glass of champagne in hand she said:

"I am over the moon that our students are already making their mark and winning awards. This is an amazing achievement considering our Filmmaking Production and Post Production degrees have only been running for two years. I could not be more proud of the students and the fantastic teaching team I am lucky enough to work with."

For Dr Susan McMillan, Executive Dean at boomsatsuma, the awards came as no surprise: 

"Boomsatsuma’s Film School is fast developing a local, regional and national reputation. Our industry partners - whether that’s Films at 59 or the BBC – know we are developing the next generation of talent for Bristol’s film and TV sector. This shows we are heading in the right direction - expect to see more award winning films in the future."
