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.
