  • 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.

Arran - Scholar

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.

Amber - Scholar

Pg Dip Property Making at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I am currently studying prop making at RADA. I have been selected to receive a Warner Bros. Creative Talent scholarship that will support me during my time as a student – with funding, an industry business mentor and creative talent master classes. The partnership will also benefit me as I continue my career, with the development of many valuable connections and a work placement when I graduate next year
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I have always wanted to make things! At the moment my priorities are to expand my skills base and absorb as much practical knowledge as possible. I think that it is a very exciting and creative time for the world of film, theatre and entertainment. We have a wealth of traditional and contemporary craft methods at our disposal as well as new techniques, which are constantly evolving to offer further possibilities for design. During my career I hope to work with directors and creative teams who recognise the importance of beautiful, cohesive design, who are passionate about what they and are open to fresh ideas. Most of all I hope to never stop learning and discovering new things.
Which Warner Bros. character would you be and why?
Sometimes I feel like Bilbo Baggins embarking on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Or the little boy, Max, from Where The Wild Things Are, who sails away to discover an unknown and highly surprising land. I am often stunned by reminders of how big the world is and what adventures are waiting to happen.

The partnership will also benefit me as I continue my career, with the development of many valuable connections and a work placement when I graduate next year.

Which Warner Bros. production would you most like to work on?
I would love the opportunity to work on a fantasy epic like The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies or the upcoming Joe Wright film, Pan, where creating a complex and beautiful world is crucial to the visual storytelling. I’m also fascinated by and passionate about puppet making so would be very excited to be involved in any new Warner Bros. production using puppetry in film or theatre.
Tell us something about yourself most people would be surprised by.
Most people are surprised when I tell them that I make puppets. When you are surrounded by something it becomes very everyday and you forget that it is actually quite an unusual career or hobby. In the past I’ve been asked to make some very strange things, such as a giant baby that needs to eat children and a plague of crabs individually carved from wood.
