  • 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.

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.

Daniel - Scholar

MA Screenwriting at the Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology

What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
It's an unbelievable advantage, and one that I still can't believe has been bestowed on me. The creative industries are such a tough place to forge a professional future, but with this program Warner Bros. are offering the support, insight and experiences that render us all so much more employable. It's a fantastic opportunity.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
Until I get the call to replace Messi at the Nou Camp, I would love to go forward and work as a writer. It's not an easy sector to break into, which is why the Warner Bros. Creative Talent masterclasses surrounding various processes in the industry are likely to prove vital. I'm hoping they will shed light on the inner workings of a major like Warner Bros., and help me to intelligently strategise a career.
What is your favourite Warner Bros. film, TV, game or theatre production?
Tough question, there are lots. Last year it was Edge of Tomorrow, which was an absolute blast. Obviously classics like Casablanca and The Exorcist chart high, but I've also got to show some love for Deep Blue Sea. It's a film about super intelligent hybrid sharks that includes the line "Beneath this glassy surface, a world of gliding monsters" and has L.L Cool J providing the ultimate Omelette recipe. I'm a fan.

Which Warner Bros. production would you most like to work on?
I suspect working on the first Hangover film would've been amazing. It's such a smart conceit, executed with so much energy. None of that leading trio were especially renowned before 2009, now they're all huge stars. I imagine the vibes on that set were pretty fantastic.
Tell us something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
I've a strange obsession with the fortunes and career of Australian tennis player Lleyton Hewitt. I'm not hugely into the sport, but whenever a major's unfolding, I know how he's doing. Apparently I took to him in the late 90s because he wore his cap backwards.
