Sargent-Disc NFTS Scholarship Update

No comments

Summary

One of the latest recipients of Sargent-Disc's Scholarship to study Production Management for Film at the NFTS, Kieran Nolan Jones, shares his experience of the first term with us.

NFTS Scholarship Update 2017

Sargent-Disc is delighted to provide scholarship support for two students taking the Production Management for Film Diploma course at the National Film and Television School (NFTS). 

 

 

Kieran Nolan Jones, one of the latest recipients, shared his experiences so far at the school.

 

 

'Since starting the course in September I have been able to work on a vast array of projects; spanning many different disciplines. Before I began working on these projects I participated in a series of seminars and workshops. Subjects included budgeting, scheduling and location management. This gave me a great insight into the ever-evolving role of a Production Manager and allowed me to understand the job I was about to undertake.

 

Two weeks after starting the course I was given my first assignment working as a Production Coordinator on a Russian Language short fiction film called Nina. Taking over a whole council estate in London, we shot a war based drama over four days with a budget of £4000. Acting as a baptism of fire this experience allowed me to participate in all aspects of production from organising tech recces and transport plans, to catering and casting. On completion of this I took the confidence and experience I had acquired and applied it to the next project I worked on. The project in question was live late night television entertainment show The 5'Oclock Show.

 

Through the contacts made during my time working on my curriculum projects I was offered the chance to Production Coordinate a graduation animation project named 'Tete A Tete. Blending live action models, stop motion and 2D animation Tete A Tete is a film which reflects the modern world's relationship with technology and how this can effect our personal relationships.

 

Most recently I have acted as a Production Manager on our Expanded Cinema film, Beast In The Bag. Through this project NFTS directors are tasked with stretching their imagination and attempting to push narrative boundaries. My project can be described as a surreal, noir inspired short thriller with darkly comedic undertones.

 

On this project we did not have Producers working this us so many of the Producers' responsibilities fell to us. By taking on more experience this project allowed me to be creatively involved in all aspects of production and gain experience in being the sole leader of a film, steer the ship and trouble shoot all issues which arise.

 

After gaining experience across multiple disciplines I have been able to take on freelance work as a Production Manager outside my studies. This has included Production Managing an independent short film with a budget of £20,000, as well as production managing a short film for Channel 4 starring Dave Johns (I,Daniel Blake).

 

At the time of writing this blog I am currently in pre-production on a high octane virtual reality disaster/horror short film of which I will production manage. Without the help I have received from Sargent-Disc I would never have been able to experience all that I have thus far in my NFTS Career, and for all their help and support I will be eternally grateful.'
