University of Plymouth hits home hat-trick

A group of people pose with an award

A record 27 entries were received from six universities and colleges in the region.

The Factual: Short Form award went to Tom Box’s Dancing Minds, which the judges admired for its “contemporary visual style.… We really got to know the young people and their concerns.”

DISC by Kian Radford and Olin Quigley Daly won the Journalism award. The judges were moved by the “heart-breaking sound bites” from contributors, which revealed a little-seen view of the picturesque town of Newquay.

Uni panels offer insights into local TV and film opportunities

The first of two panels featured Plymouth-based artist Katy Richardson, film-maker and director Esther Campbell, who worked on Wallander, and Jack Hinchey, a senior production co-ordinator at Drummer TV.

The second panel was composed of recent graduates of the University of Plymouth.

Centre Chair Siobhan Robbie-James said: "If you join the RTS, it will give you lots of opportunities to meet industry professionals. Our focus is on helping to develop anyone who works in the industry."
