A FILM made by Wiltshire College students from Salisbury has been shortlisted for a Royal Television Society award.

The Manor, which was a summer project by second and third year students studying the BA film and cinematography degree course at the Salisbury campus, will go up against two others in the Best Drama category of the Student Awards Southern Nominees 2018.

Wiltshire College’s Deputy Principal Iain Hatt will be attending the black tie ceremony, which takes place at Winchester Guildhall tomorrow (Friday, February 23), alongside staff and students who were involved with the project.

He said: “This is a great achievement and fantastic to see their work being recognised.”

The action short, which was organised by film technician Tim Dodd and saw students come together to write, cast, produce, direct and shoot the piece, which tells the story of two soldiers on opposing sides.

It was shot across the Wiltshire countryside over four days, starring Joe Ashman and Conor Hartnett.

Andrew Smith, who is the programme leader of the BA Film Production and Cinematography course, said: “This is a testament to the teaching and support provided to all students throughout their three years on the course.

“A great deal of work goes into any successful film and Tim’s dedication to this particular project has certainly paid off.”

If successful at the Southern awards, the film will be entered into the national RTS awards in London.
