  • 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.

Gemma - Scholar

MA TV Fiction Writing at Glasgow Caledonian University

What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
First and foremost, without this program I would not be able to do my masters course, so the fact it has given me the opportunity to do this course, is in itself, such an amazing thing. Aside from that, to have a connection to a company such as Warner Bros. is incredible for someone who wants to get into the film and/or television industry. The program gives me the chance to get an inside look at the real working world of making TV. I couldn’t really ask to be in a better position right now.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
That’s simple; I want to be a screenwriter. Getting the chance to create my own original drama series is definitely an aim, but writing for an existing TV show has always been a dream of mine. I’m a huge fan of soap operas and would love to join the team of an existing show; I love the idea of working with existing characters and worlds and bringing my own little something to it.
What is your favourite Warner Bros. film, TV, game or theatre production?
I have a somewhat biased love for television as that is the industry I want to be part of. Warner Bros. has an incredible list of TV shows of which many fall in to my ‘favourite TV shows of all time’. However, I think that, without fail, Friends is not only just my favourite Warner Bros. creation, but also my favourite TV show, ever. There has not been a show since that has had the impact friends had. It is timeless, hilarious and an almost perfect creation. There are no bad episodes and they keep the premise simple, we fall in love with every one of the characters. What more could you ask for?

Which Warner Bros. character would you be and why?
I’ll stick with Friends and say that if I could be any of the gang, it has to be Phoebe. She never apologises for her differences, she’s passionate about animals, the environment and doing the right thing. I have always wanted to be as unafraid as Phoebe and do my best to be as free spirited, moral and audacious as she is.
Who do you most admire in the industry?
Russell T Davies. I admire his inclusion and exploration of LGBT characters in his TV programs. I think that LGBT characters are often mis/under represented on TV and really respect the way he integrates these issues and characters in an interesting, human and naturalistic way. It’s a hard but essential thing to do and I’m glad he does it so successfully and on mainstream television.
