  • 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.

Matthew - Apprentice

Production Assistant Apprentice at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden

How are you involved in Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
My job title is Studio Assistant Apprentice. In my role I get the chance to experience a number of different aspects within the industry. I am based in the sales and bookings department which is where clients book studio space in order to film at Leavesden Studios. This entails me calling and receiving calls from potential and current clients and making sure all of their needs can be met. I have been allowed to help work on some of the marketing ideas which have been really interesting as there have been a mixture of items used in order to promote the studios through the means of merchandise and other forms. I have also been allowed to give tours to people around the studios which have been really useful for me as it has helped me to remember the huge site at a quicker rate. Luckily enough I haven’t got anyone else lost yet.
What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
Getting an opportunity like this at such an establishment is huge and I feel will benefit me greatly for the future. It has allowed me to come straight from 6th form in to the working world and a great environment that is constantly growing.
Which Warner Bros. character would you be and why?
Daffy Duck, because I’ve been told I run like a duck.

Each department I’ve already been able to see does something really impressive.

Who do you most admire in the industry?
I think there are probably too many people in the industry to list. Each department I’ve already been able to see does something really impressive. Many people may think that the film industry stops at the actors and directors but there really are hundreds if not thousands of people working on a daily basis to get a production completed to the highest level. One area that has been really great to see are the people working on scenery and settings and just how they create the locations. They make it look really authentic and it must be a real accomplishment when they complete a set and get to see it in the film.
