The Royal Television Society’s Scotland Centre, honored the winners of its 2019 Student Awards, sponsored by STV, at a glittering ceremony held at The Argyle Street Arches, Glasgow. The event was hosted by STV News entertainment reporter Laura Boyd and comedic double act Link & Lorne. As part of a new partnership we are delighted to have STV support the Scotland Student Awards by filming the event to broadcast edited highlights on the STV Player after the event.
Love Island star and social media influencer Laura Crane hosted the ceremony, which was held at the Jill Craigie Cinema, University of Plymouth, in late March. Crane, who is also a champion surfer, talked to the students about her life in the media. “People sometimes forget about us down here, but don’t! There are honestly so many incredible films. It’s mad to think that these people are just starting out,” she said.
The National Film School’s Éabha Bortolozza and Jack Kirwin took home the Animation award for their film about alcoholism, The Usual. “The composition and flow of the imagery is creative and demonstrates a high standard of animation direction,” said the judges.
Brendan McCallion and Frank O’Malley’s farm-set film, Backwater, won the Drama award and featured “a strong acting cast”, with “good scripting, detailed camera shots and set design [making] this a decidedly powerful production”.
