  • 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.

Sam B - 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?
It is such a unique honour for me to be a part of Warner Bros. Creative Talent, it has broadened my horizons tenfold and given me the chance to learn from some of the best in their industries. It means that my life has taken an incredible turn and I couldn't be more excited about it.
Which Warner Bros. character would you be and why?
I would be Dick Grayson from Batman: The Animated Series just so I could hang out with the greatest incarnation of Batman and explore that beautiful sweeping noire Gotham. My own kids are definitely watching batman at the crack of dawn camped in front of the TV in a fort made of cereal boxes, Dad will be there too.
Who do you most admire in the industry?
I admire many different people from lots of different industries not just game design, I am inspired by the writing of Neil Gaiman and the work of Mike Mignola, the films of Guillermo Del Toro and the games of thatgamecompany and many more. Who I admire most changes but recently I saw a talk with Jenova Chen in which he spoke about how he wanted Journey to give a positive feeling that people could take away with them, to make the world a little better for the person playing and I admire that. Leaving the world a little better, or trying to, is definitely something I aspire to.

Which Warner Bros. production would you most like to work on?
If there was a Pacific Rim sequel, I would love to be involved in that, the first film was so fresh and new, I really enjoyed it, I would love to be a part of the writing or the design. I'm really into world building and they did such a great job bringing the world within that film to life.
Tell us something about yourself most people would be surprised by?
When I went to University to study Games Design in South Wales I couldn't actually get funding for my first year and was told that I would have to leave. I managed to make ends meet that year by selling off my vast comic collection online that I had collected since I was young. I let everything go except for my Hellboy graphic novels. On a lighter note when I was really young and just getting to grips with my first words, I was obsessed with the moon and ate nothing but macaroni cheese.
