RTS awards 2011 nominations

From Head of School Sarah Barrow:

We’re thrilled to announce that this year we have received 3 Regional Award Nominations for student final year film & animation projects produced during 2009-10.


“SMOG” – by Chris Kirk & Ashley Pay
Tutor: Ros Garland


NORTHMEN“- Philip Stevens, Ben Barzak, Stewart McGregor, Mathew Steward, Jake Tomlinson, Elif Baki

“GREASEPAINT” – Philip Stevens, Stewart McGregor, Mathew Steward, Jake Tomlinson, Elif Baki
Tutor: Andy Mckay

Congratulations to the students (now graduated!) and to all those who supported these projects & the students in various different ways over the course of their degrees.

UPDATE (From David Sleight):The team did indeed win their category and thereby beat themselves! Greasepaint was successful over Northmen! Our congratulations to all nominees and winners.

Our graduates were successful last evening and from 37 University and College entries to this year’s Midlands RTS Awards, we received three nominations, two in the same category by the same team – the first time this has ever happened!

Sarah, Andy, Brian, Ros, Chris and myself were there with 13 graduates to enjoy the evening in the Great Hall at University of Birmingham, along with 400 media industry professionals from across the Midlands.
Another update, from Vice Chancellor Mary Stuart:
Congratulations to all, a really good result and so good for the students and many thanks to our excellent staff who make it happen! Best wishes, Mary
