  • 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.

Josefine - Trainee

Camera Trainee at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden on Heart of the Sea.

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I was a camera trainee on the new Warner Bros. feature Heart of the Sea directed by Ron Howard.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
I feel very lucky to be part of this great programme. I think it's fantastic that Warner Bros. is starting to support people in the UK, in an industry that is quite difficult to break into unless you know someone on the inside.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
My dream is to become a camera operator one day, but most importantly I hope to travel a lot through work, experience other cultures and continue to meet new and interesting people on set, from all different backgrounds.

“My dream is to become a camera operator.”

Who do you most admire in the industry?
There are many people I admire in the industry. There are several camera assistants and cinematographers that I have met whose endurance and patience is incredible, especially the ability to remain calm but still think on your feet under intense pressure. There is one individual in particular who I witnessed judging the exposure on eight different cameras whilst on a violently rocking boat, responding to over 25 camera people on three different radio channels, and his voice always remained reassuring and confident.
Which Warner Bros. production would you most like to work on?
I would have loved to work on the Harry Potter films because they had such a great budget for creative work and I love the books. I would have also loved to work on the Book of Eli to see how the director and cinematographer worked together to block the actors and the cameras to get such dynamic compositions.
