NFTS As Seen on TV!

BAFTA Win Covered on BBC, ITV & Sky

News crews have become a common sight over the past couple of weeks as the BBC, ITV and Sky have visited the School to cover our Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema BAFTA, which we collected at the ceremony on Sunday 18th February 2018.

BBC Senior Entertainment Reporter, Chi Chi Izundu was first to the School and interviewed NFTS alumni including Oscar winning composer, Dario Marianelli and recent Composing MA graduate, Jessica Jones who both worked on Darkest Hour.

Sky were up next and Reporter, Katerina Vittozzi interviewed Production Design MA student, Theo Boswell and Assistant Directing Diploma student, Stephanie Bradshaw about their experience of working with the Digital Effects MA students on this year’s horror style Gorefest set.

ITV visited after we collected the BAFTA and were lucky enough to interview legendary Blade Runner 2049 Director, Denis Villeneuve who was at the School to give a masterclass and they got to film the actual NFTS BAFTA itself!

It wasn't only TV that covered our exciting news. BBC Three Counties Radio also got in on the action and interviewed NFTS Director, Jon Wardle on why the NFTS was to receive such a prestigious award and why the UK is experiencing such a boom in film and television production - listen again here.

And here is the special video BAFTA created to celebrate our award plus Jon Wardle and former NFTS Director, Nik Powell's acceptance speeches:
