Ravensbourne Alumni Receive British Academy Film Awards Nomination

News Image
A film by two Ravensbourne alumni, Charlotte Regan and Jack Hannon, has been nominated for Best British Short Film at the British Academy Film Awards, a ceremony ran by BAFTA.

The graduates' film – Standby – is about the evolving relationship of police officers Gary and Jenny and the characters they meet throughout their days at work. Last year, it was selected to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Ravensbourne alumni Bradley Stearn, who graduated with Charlotte and Jack on the BA (Hons) Digital Film Production course, also helped to shoot 'Standby'.

Commenting on the nomination, Jack Hannon said: "Charlotte rang me in the morning and I thought she was playing an elaborate prank! We are both so shocked but extremely happy. We will never forget Ravensbourne it was the place we met and forged a fantastic working relationship. Our lecturers were a massive help and were huge influences on us. They encouraged and supported us which enable us to get where we are today."

The winners will be announced on Sunday, 12 February at a ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall.
