  • 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.

Naomi - Scholar

MA Games Design and Development at The National Film and Television School

What does it mean to you to be part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent?
The fact that Warner Bros. have faith in me and believe in what I can achieve is incredible. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunity and I cannot wait to get started on my course and continue my adventure.
What do you hope to achieve in your career?
I really want to create games which are imaginative and full of life, with original stories and beautiful environments. To me, gaming is about the story, the characters and the world you find yourself in and immersing the player into the story you have created for them. To be a part of that chain would mean expressing my creativity through a medium I am passionate about and creating something memorable.
What is your favourite Warner Bros. film, TV, game or theatre production?
Simply enough, all the Lego games. Especially the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit as being able to run around and explore Middle Earth in my own time is somewhat of a dream. Seeing my favourite films brought to life in a game and to be a part of the adventure fills my time with endless fun.

I cannot wait to get started on my course and continue my adventure.

Who do you most admire in the industry?
Jeph Loeb, the man behind the fantastic Batman graphic novels, The Long Halloween, Haunted Knight and Dark Victory. Possibly the greatest series I have read. The stories are fantastic and imaginative and really draw you into the world of Gotham whilst including numerous well known characters.
Which Warner Bros. production would you most like to work on?
I would love the opportunity to work on the Batman game series (Arkham: Asylum is a great game) or any of the Lego game titles. I like being able to translate something I have seen in film or read in a book into a playable world of my own design.
