Bournemouth University Television Production graduate wins prestigious award.
Bournemouth University (BU) graduate Hamish Anderson has won the Best Undergraduate Entertainment Category at the 16th Royal Television Society Student Awards.
The ceremony celebrated the best audiovisual work completed by full or part time students as part of their degrees, recognising pieces displaying outstanding visual and aural creativity, craft skills, innovation and initiative.
Hamish, who graduated from BU last year with a First Class Honours in Television Production, was awarded the prize for his film ‘Shadowed’, which he produced as a coursework project for his degree.
Hamish says ‘Shadowed’ is the piece of work he is most proud of. He said: “It’s an experimental tap dance film, mixed with a new music genre called Dubstep, so it was a bit off the wall.”
The film was nominated by judges ahead of two other nominees at the ceremony, which was held on Friday 20th May at the National Media Museum in Bradford.
The judges stated that the film had them ‘transfixed’. They were particularly impressed with the “editorial sensitivity and technical control demonstrated in illustrating what might on paper appear to be a slightly obtuse proposition.”
Speaking after his graduation in November, Hamish acknowledged the support he received during his time at BU, claiming “I couldn’t have done it by myself. I had a really good team with me.”
