Creative media students continue to receive awards nominations
22 May 12
The University of Bradford has announced a further three shortlisted entries from its student body for media industry awards, following the news only last week of the success of Bradford Media School students.
David William (BSc Computer Animation and Special Effects) has produced the short film Malpractice scooped the Royal Television Society Yorkshire Student award in the animation category. Following this, his work will now be going to the BBC's 'Media City' in Salford to attend BBC North Developing Talent Partnership Awards 2012.
Both Paul Roberts (BSc Computer Animation and Special Effects) and Gavin Robinson (MSc Computer Animation and Special Effects) have also been shortlisted as finalists for the partnership awards in the category of 'Content Innovation'.
Paul Roberts has developed a tool that is comparable with the latest visual effects and games software applications, which can create complex 3D models of gothic cathedrals. Gavin's project is different again, exploring how computer graphics technology can be adapted to help those who suffer with Parkinson's disease, creating a computer generated 'workout' video for the face.
Ian Palmer, Dean of the School of Computing, Informatics and Media said: "These awards nominations are a further testament to our students' high quality work, and the depth and breadth of the curriculum here at the School of Computing, Informatics and Media. We encourage our students to develop innovative projects that will see them well prepared to find work in the industry of their choice, based on the experience and knowledge gained while studying here."
