A team of Film Production students from the University of Gloucestershire have been named the winners of the undergraduate Comedy & Entertainment category by the Royal Television Society.
The team, who are in their final year at the University, produced the film ‘Delicious Love’. The judging panel gave warm praise for the film, saying it was ‘Unanimous in its impact on the whole jury. It was distinctive, original, and a memorable visual treat with its use of graphics, colour, and set. Loved the narration too.’
The film also earned recognition in other categories, with student Jade Elwood winning the craft skills award for Production Design. The judges commented: ‘So bright and so clever, the look and design of this film were simply outstanding.’ Kate Sinade was also nominated for the craft skills award for Sound on the same film.
Siobhan Greene, Head of Entertainment Commissioning, ITV and Chair of the RTS Student Television Awards, said: “The juries this year had some extremely tough decisions to make, narrowing down an impressive line-up of incredibly creative entries from all over the UK. We were delighted to recognise and celebrate the incredible talent coming into the industry last night. Congratulations to all the winners!”
The University’s Media School has enjoyed a year of successes including awards at the Webby Awards (a documentary by Film Production lecturer Lindsey Dryden), the Midlands Media Student Awards (final year Journalism student Hesham Abdelhamid), and the BAFTAs (short film ’73 Cows’ by alumni Alex Lockwood and Oliver Walton).
