Royal Television Society Student Awards

The Royal Television Society, London Student Awards recognise the best audiovisual work created by students at undergraduate and postgraduate level. It’s like the Oscars for students – just as glamorous and rewarding. Our lovely film students have won the award for ‘Best Short Drama’. This award is going to CPDA students at the University of Greenwich for the second year running. We’re all immensely proud of their achievement.

A special thank you also goes to Em Cooke: Camera Department and Joshua Cowle: 1st AD / Fight Director, who weren’t able to be there.

Their movie ‘Philip Knight’ is a political drama filled with stunning scenery, not only from University Of Greenwich, but also from the French Alps. A project that exceeds expectations. It tells a story of two opposing politicians and their race for leadership. Elizabeth June has leaked a scandal to the press about Philip, and so he takes it upon himself to dig up some dirt on Elizabeth in order to bump her headline and regain control.
