Gorefest NFTS Set Visit

No comments

Summary

Sargent-Disc is proud to provide scholarship support to two Production Management students at the NFTS each year. Earlier this year, we caught up with this year's talented recipients.

Gorefest NFTS Set Visit

 

Earlier this year I was invited to the National Film and Television School (NFTS) to visit the set of Gorefest, a project that Emanuela Borruso, one of our Sargent-Disc Production Management scholars, was currently Production Managing.

 

On arrival, I was taken straight to the set where I was able to observe the crew first hand as they shot several takes of a poignant scene in the production - the two characters discover that a tragic accident has taken place within the cave they have sought shelter in. As this was a digital effects project, some imagination was needed for this scene as the effects would be added in at a later date.

 

Emanuela explained that the crew were currently marking up the set for the digital effects crew - each take the director pointed out where the markers should be placed as the camera panned out. She also took me on a closer look at the set in between takes, giving me an insight into the incredible attention to detail during the build - from the rocky surface of the cave walls to the icicles on the actors' eyelashes (created from sugar and water).

 

Following this, I accompanied Emanuela and Priya (another Sargent-Disc scholar) on a tour of the NFTS, meeting some of the other PMs in their production office and caught sight of the BAFTA for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema that the school was awarded in 2018 proudly displayed in the entrance. The scholars discussed how they were finding their time at the NFTS so far:

 

'I cannot believe it has been only five months since I started the Production Management course at the NFTS: five months of incredible projects, hard work, challenges and achievements.

 

In this short - yet very intense - period of time, the school has given us the opportunity to take part in so many different projects, including but not limited to short fiction films, commercials and live TV shows. The school has also offered us amazing Masterclasses given by masters of this industry such as David Yates and Martin McDonagh. These truly exclusive experiences felt more like a private conversation and felt very special to be involved in.

 

The school's network of students and professional alumni is great, and thanks to this you are given the chance to take part in so many new projects. For example, I was able to take work on one of our DFX course's main projects, Gorefest, which gave me the chance to experience a digital effect-based production and how this differs from more classic productions. Also, an NFTS alumnus from the SFX course, whom I had met on work experience, was able to join and help out on our digi fiction film. Networking is a big part of the industry and the film school's network of people is definitely a great bonus.

 

Last, but definitely not least, the importance that the NFTS' name holds within this industry has already allowed me to get work experience at award-winning productions such as BBC America's Killing Eve 2 and at one of Netflix's upcoming mini-series. None of this would have been possible had I not been supported by my tutors and, of course, without Sargent-Disc, whose scholarship I feel so very blessed to have received.' Emanuela Borruso

'It's been a whirlwind of five months on the Production Management course at the NFTS! I have worked on so many projects since starting such as two short fiction films, a documentary, two commercials and a live TV show. It's been so great getting to work in different teams, learning how the TV and Film process works behind the scenes and the amount of organisation that is needed to go into developing an idea through to production day. Being a Production Manager can be the most stressful job when there are last minute changes or problems on the day but it's also the most rewarding when you can finish a production and know it went well and the director is happy with what they have made.

 

One of my favourite projects so far was the live television project we did. It was called A5 O'clock Show - a studio based show similar to The One Show on the BBC. My director and producer had great ideas incorporating the Berlin Light Festival and Le Petit Chef, an interactive restaurant in London which has animated projections on tables as diners eat for our VT's apart of the show. It was all filmed in our television studio at NFTS.

 

I have enjoyed every second of my time here so far and it wouldn't be possible without Sargent Disc.' Priya Sidhu

As the Marketing and Sales Manager for Sargent-Disc, one of my responsibilities involves managing the Academic Partnerships. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity each year to build relationships with the Sargent-Disc scholars and look forward to seeing the culmination of their efforts at the screenings of their graduation projects next February.
