RTS Student Television Awards 2021

During these unprecedented times with the challenges they present, these Student Television Awards allow you to submit films for assessment by current professional practitioners.

The RTS has recently surveyed several Universities and Colleges with regards to our plans for this year’s RTS Student Television Awards and taking on board their feedback and recommendations, we are increasing the maximum length of entries to 30 minutes for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate student entries for this year’s Awards. For the Young Filmmaker category, the duration stays at 10 minutes.

My RTS Bursary Diary: Victor Hampson

I recently spent a week in the commissioning department at UKTV. I arrived at the reception and gave my name, braced for the understandable response that I should leave immediately due to my lack of relevance and the fact that everyone here was very busy getting on with their jobs. But no, I was welcomed in.

As I walked through the turnstile, I expected alarms to ring out - “Unauthorised entry! You do not belong here! And also sort your hair out; seriously, what’s going on there?” but once again I passed through without an eyebrow raised.

Breaking records with Casulty director Jon Sen

In front of an audience of students from Solent and Bournemouth University, Sen gave a fascinating insight into the job of masterminding the 52-minute, single-shot episode, which aired last July.

Sen explained that the programme – a celebration of the 30th anniversary of BBC One series Casualty – was shot in a single take to heighten the sense of drama in a busy A&E department.
