Film and Media: Bede’s Oscars Celebrate Class of 2015
Bede's annual Oscars ceremony is always one of the highlights of the year, with student film, media and design work screened and awards given to students before a rapturous crowd in the Miles Studio.
This year's Bede's Oscars was a tremendous success with the student entries reaching a new high in terms of technical complexity and ambition. Films were shot in London, Florida and Barbados as well as a very successful ironic horror film set, of all places, in Stud boarding house!
Students tackled dialogue recording and sound design particularly well this year and special mention must go to Ivan Friedman and Will Morgan for their artfully scripted and beautifully shot revenge thriller.
Luc Foster's road safety film was mysterious, cunning and ultimately shocking while Alex Mirzoeff Campbell and Joe Robson made a visually stunning and provocative film about alcohol abuse and homelessness which will live in the memory for years to come.
Other highlights included Ben Broyd's tender and thoughtful film about the cycle of bullying and Tilly Corbett's heart-breaking short about childhood fantasy, absent parents and the redemptive power of The Rolling Stones.
Ekaterina Bladhukaeva got the biggest cheer of the night for her perfectly choreographed street dance video - well done Ekaterina!
Special thanks go to Ben Laws from Camberlot House who stepped in at the last moment to run the lights and did a superb job.
See you all next year!
