The Wall wins in Undergraduate Factual and Oliver Roberts wins in Craft Skills for Sound
The RTS National Student Television Awards took place on Friday 16th June at the BFI in London, at a ceremony hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan. After initial judging of the undergraduate entries in the regions, the nominations for the national final were selected from the regional winners by the national juries.
The Wall from the University of the West of England triumphed in the Undergraduate Factual category - a film made by Christy Tattershall, Matt Pidala, Alex Handschuh, Edd Roberts and Patrick Royall. The judges said 'it was a sensitively crafted and beautifully paced film, that revealed a world seldom covered, with stunning visuals and excellent casting. A stark and compelling work'.
Oliver Roberts from the University of Bristol also won in Undergraduate Craft Skills, in Sound, for animation Heist. The judges were hugely impressed with the soundtrack for this short film. 'The strident music and bold spot effects are as potent as the visuals in conveying this engaging romp that contains no dialogue'. Animation Heist, made by Edward Leicester from the University of the West of England, was shortlisted in Undergraduate Animation.
Congratulations to the team from The Wall, Oliver Roberts and Edward Leicester!
