Former UCLan Screenwriting student wins ‘Best Video’ at the Royal Television Society Awards!


A former UCLan student, Lauren Clark, has won a prestige award for ‘Best Video’ at the Royal Television Society Award ceremony at Media City, Salford.

The award was accredited by Louise Minchin, the Daytime BBC presenter, in connection with the short film, ‘LA Larry’. The film is part of the project, ‘Five Thousand Miles’. Lauren, graduated from Screenwriting at UCLan in 2013.

The Five Thousand Miles project involves a group of nine students from UCLAn who create five short films, in Preston and Los Angeles. This involves screenwriters, film & television producers, a journalist and a web developer.

Credits also go to, Andrew Johnson, Becky Collins, Danny Yates, Mick Gornall, Alan Keegan, Megan Knight, Mark Porter and Stephen Place, who helped with the making of the film, all from the UCLan School of Journalism and Media. UCLan lecturers, Sarah Evans and Bill McCoid took up the role of executive producer in the short film too.

UCLan were still winning as a further two more awards were received by students from the Animation category, lectured by Sarah Kennedy.

Lauren is currently still amazed by her achievement.
