The School of Media is delighted to announce that 2 films from last year’s 3rd year projects have been successful in receiving shortlist nominations from the RTS (Royal Television Society) for their Midlands Awards ceremony which will take place later this year.
We would like to congratulate Adam Clark and Dominic White and their production teams on this notable success & the inspiration that it provides for all our students. The nominations are in the Fiction and Entertainment categories and are listed below along with the RTS judging panel comments.
Fiction: “Breakpoint” – Dominic White and team. The judges thought that this was a very strong drama. Well shot, excellent locations which added to the dramatic effect. Good direction and production and believable acting.
Entertainment: “Porcelain” – Adam Clark The judges felt that this was particularly well written and was witty and engaging. It was entertaining, clever and the character of the mug was very well developed. A strong entry.

Hello everyone! Well it has almost been a year since I left the United Kingdom to study at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. After meeting Sarah Barrow who visited San Francisco for a conference and showing her around both the city and the Academy, it was suggested that I give an update blog…which I am happy to do of course!
Since my last blog back in September 2011, I have completed two semesters and seven courses. The classes have ranged from writing short scripts, filming short films, directing actors, editing film footage etc.
