Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Film students and graduates in awards triumph

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s film department were the big winners at the Royal Television Society Scotland’s prestigious Student Television Awards at the Argyle Street Arches in Glasgow.

It was a successful night all round for students and alumni with last year’s showcase films posting some impressive results.

As well as taking the Best Drama award for What Separates Us From the Beasts, written and directed by Sedona May Tubbs, RCS had a near clean sweep in the Craft awards with wins in four of the five categories.

Robin Boreham won the inaugural Best Writing Award for Incoming Tide while another of last year’s showcase films, Coalescence, won Best Sound for Karo Pietila and Best Camera for Johnstone Macpherson-Stewart. One of last year’s second year films, Threnody by Paul Barrie, won Best Production Design.

Afterwards, Ray Tallan, Head of Film at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, said: “Naturally we are delighted to have had such a successful evening. The results validate what we are doing in the department and highlight the standards we continue to achieve.”
