Two University films nominated for Learning on Screen Award
The awards, led by the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC), are the only celebration of film and media production in education in the UK.
This year, 44 submissions were nominated in 12 different categories. The nominations recognise the work education institutions and other organisation or individual producing educational media.
Daylighting of Heritage Spaces, directed by Creative and Print Services’ Video Producer, Dominic Richardson, explores Professor John Mardaljevic’s research into the distribution of natural light and its level of exposure in historic buildings.
Dominic’s film depicts Professor Mardaljevic’s use of high dynamic range (HDR) imaging to measure where the natural light falls at different points throughout the day and over several months in the Smoking Room at Ickworth House in Suffolk.
The video includes interviews with Professor Mardalijevic on his research and Dr Nigel Blades, Preventive Conservation Advisor for the National Trust.
The second nomination, Inspiring Creativity, provides an insight into the Fine Art course at Loughborough. Final year student, Amelia, describes the journey of discovery and creativity which her degree has taken her on, as she prepares to display at her final degree show.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 28 April at the British Film Institute in London.
