Stratford College film students focused on the RSC stage

Ian Hughes 9th Jan, 2018

MEDIA students at Stratford College have been producing film trailers for upcoming RSC productions.

As part of their course, students were tasked by the RSC’s media and marketing teams with creating film trailers.

They pitched their artistic visions for the proposed trailers to the RSC before being grilled on their ideas in a Dragons Den-style presentation.

Kris Vankay, video technician at the RSC, worked with the students, assigning them the task, providing insights into the film-making process and giving advice on how best to present their ideas.

He said: “They really blew me away with their presentations. It was genuinely impressive. This is the third year I’ve been involved with the project and I am really pleased with how it has developed.”

The budding filmmakers’ achievements were recognised at an awards ceremony with categories ranging from Best Original Idea to Best Lighting.

Josh Stacey, 17 from Stratford, scooped four awards, including Best Cinematography and Best Trailer.
