MEDIA GRADUATES UP FOR AWARDS

 

Two productions by University of Lincoln graduates have been shortlisted for a Royal Television Society award.

 

‘Cravings’, directed by the university’s current Students’ Union President Darius Laws, and ‘Hailing’, a DVD production by Becky Pearson, are both in line for a regional student prize.

 

The prizes will be handed out at the RTS central region awards night in Birmingham on 11th October 2003.

 

“Four student productions were entered and it’s great news that two have been shortlisted,” said Christine Bellamy, senior lecturer in Media Production at the university.

 

“It’s quite an achievement because our students are competing with all universities and colleges in the central and east midlands region.”

 

‘Cravings’ was produced by Lucy Craymer and written by Steven Wetherell, who was also responsible for sound. It was edited by Robin Hennessy and Oliver Stothert was responsible for art direction.

 

Two years ago University of Lincoln graduates Bo Stehmeier, Mark Reynolds, Gary Templeman and Grisha Nikolsky won the student award for ‘Battered Cod’, a factual documentary about the crisis in fishing stocks.

 

In 2000 Lawrence Wright and his team of fellow graduates from Lincoln won the award for their film ‘Killing in the Name’.
