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.
Animation graduate John Bowen, together with Media graduates Paul Hope, David Robinson, Josh Pearce went to the BBC Lincolnshire studio last week to talk about their RTS nomination on Melvyn Prior’s show at 10am.

We have just received good news from Andy McKay. The Chair of the Midlands Royal Television Society judges has told him that Dirty Diamond Media has been nominated for Best Fiction Film in the student category.
“This is a fantastic achievement for a charming film which I know took much effort and creativity to produce.
The RTS is holding an evening event aimed at scriptwriters:
“How does a writer get a comedy script from their brain onto a tv screen? How does a producer sell that script to a commissioner? What exactly is a commissioner looking for in a script? And just what is it that a channel controller does, exactly? Guided by Richard Bacon, our extremely talented and beautiful panel attempt to answer these and other questions.”
