  • It’s important as an artist to look at the world in a unique way. Be comfortable with yourself – and resist the pressure to conform to stereotypes or what’s expected. Tap into whatever strange beauty you see in your subject that you want to share with others.

  • A filmmaker has almost the same freedom as a novelist has when he buys himself some paper.

Jon - Scholar

BA (Hons) Film and Television (Production) at University of Hertfordshire

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I have just been awarded the Warner Brothers Scholarship which involves mentoring and work experience placements as well as access to various events and screenings.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
Since the day I was told that I was chosen for the scholarship, I have been in a state of disbelief and happiness; I have never been more proud of myself which is saying a lot as there are many things I have had to overcome in my life. It feels like the beginning of my dream and I cannot wait to experience it all.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I want to create my own original television drama series and be the head writer of that show. I want to create a world and characters that begins well and delivers a finale that satisfies and moreover excites my potential audience. I want to win awards and collaborate with my heroes in the industry. Mostly, I want to make a show that deeply affects at least one person for the rest of their lives, as I have been affected by many great shows over the years.

What is your favourite Warner Bros. film, TV, game or theatre production?
I think I would have to say Friends because I grew up with it and it taught me about life and friendship as well as inspired me to write for television. To have that lightning-in-a-bottle sensation as you watch your vision unfold in front of you is something I desperately crave in my career.
Who do you most admire in the industry?
Damon Lindelof, the show runner behind Lost and The Leftovers, tells stories in such a gorgeously crafted way that it means that my back never touches the sofa when I am watching any of his work. If I can be half the television writer he is, I will count myself lucky and talented.
