Film-making protégé returns to his roots
A graduate will be returning to his roots this January as part of the latest in the Creative Networks event series.
Andrew Bond, who graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Film Production Technology in 2013, is a great example of a successful graduate who took the time to come back and speak to aspiring students.
The event 'The name's Bond...Andrew Bond: Adventures in film making’ went down a storm, especially as he spoke about his experiences of working alongside actor Idris Elba (best known for his roles in ‘Prometheus’, ‘Luther’ and ‘The Wire’) and his success on Sky 1 programme ‘The Ones to Watch’.
Andrew's heart-warming film 'Howard’s Happy Place' caught the eye of film star Idris, who chose to mentor Andrew as part of the Sky 1 programme. Idris said: “When I first started this project I said I wanted to find someone who wanted to tell a story and inspire others. In Andrew, I feel I have found someone who has a similar aspiration and that is why I picked him.”
Andrew also has a keen interest in comedy and along with fellow graduates Ollie Firrel and Chris Stylianou, is one third of the comedy group Victorious Sponge, whose YouTube channel has gained a cult following in recent years.
This is one of many great examples of our students going on to great things!
