  • 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.

BA (Hons) in Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
In my third year at Ravensbourne University doing a Digital Film Production degree I was able to apply to Warner Bros. Creative Talent and was awarded the scholarship.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
Its an absolute honour to be a part of a studio that has been at the forefront of filmmaking from the very beginning. It means a very great deal to me to be a part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent and I’m really looking forward to taking full advantage of all of the opportunities that are offered! I think this is a very important step in my career.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I want to earn a living doing something that I love, and being creative. I’m a very visual person, so filmmaking and Cinematography is the perfect way to express myself. I want nothing more than to do well and be successful as a Cinematographer.

I want to earn a living doing something that I love, and being creative. I’m a very visual person, so filmmaking and Cinematography is the perfect way to express myself.

Who do you most admire in the industry?
The cinematographer Conrad Hall is a huge inspiration. The way he creates environments where the story can tell itself through the imagery is truly inspirational. Jack Cardiff is also definitely one of my biggest inspirations, and someone who I greatly admire. His whole work ethic – the fact that he never really wanted to retire because he loved his job so much. That’s all I aspire to do in life, be in a line of work that I love so much that I don’t want to stop doing it. Filmmaking and Cinematography is that career path for me.
Tell us something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
I have a twin brother. Throughout almost all of my childhood I was home educated. I also did a lot of travelling around the world, especially to India (6 times). So I grew up having completely different experiences from other children, and I like to think this makes me approach situations in a different way. Also, when I was 11, the BBC made a short documentary about the fact that me and brother were home educated. This was one of the things that really opened my eyes to filmmaking and was one of the fundamental things that made me realise that this was a career I wanted to pursue.

Film & TV: Documentary Filmmaking at University of Hertfordshire

Tell us about being a part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent - Season One and what the experience has been like?
Being part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent has been such an amazing experience and I am so grateful to have been a part of it. Having the opportunity to attend masterclasses, have a mentor in the industry, attending events and be given funding towards my final year university film has been invaluable to me. I have learnt so much about the film and television industry and I have met so many amazing people. My mentor has given me such great advice over the past few months and has really helped me in deciding which career path I would like to go down in the industry. During my mentoring sessions I also had the chance to meet industry professionals, such as production managers and head of post production.During Season One we also got invited to incredible and exciting events which included the film premiere for Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt and visiting the set of The Voice to watch the singers rehearse and meet the crew.
What has been your highlight?
My highlight has definitely been having the chance to meet and network with other people in the industry, including of course everyone in Creative Talent. I have met so many interesting people who have given me great advice about getting into the industry and also about their own personal experiences.
How did you find the Masterclasses and did you have a favorite?
I learnt so much during the masterclasses and each one was so different - it really helped give a range of knowledge about different areas in the film and television industry. These including learning about marketing, distribution and we even have the chance to visit Warner Bros. De Lane Lea to learn about sound in movies. All of the masterclasses were really interesting; however my favourite was attending a Q&A with Roy Button OBE, Executive Vice President of Warner Bros. Productions. Having the chance to listen to Roy Button speak about his career in film was fascinating and I was so grateful to be part of the event. We also got to go to Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden for the masterclass.

Receiving a scholarship, apprenticeship or training course with Warner Bros. Creative Talent will provide you with great opportunities.

How has being part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent helped you pursue your chosen career in the industry?
When I was chosen to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent I was very unsure about what path I wished to go down in the industry. However, my mentor gave me lots of great advice and introduced me to various people who spoke to me about their different roles. My placement with Shed Media also helped me in understanding which career path I would like to pursue.
