BAFTA Scotland 2015: Steven Cameron Ferguson Takes Double Award

Congratulations to Steven Ferguson, who has achieved outstanding success at this year's British Academy Scotland New Talent Awards.

Having always dreamed of studying at the National Film and Television School, Steven achieved his ambition in 2011 when he was offered a coveted place on the MA in Cinematography. Supported by a Dewar Arts Award, Steven excelled in his studies. He achieved a Scottish BAFTA in Camera/Photography for his graduation film 'Sick' - the story of a lonely, isolated mother, and also gained the top New Talent Award for Best New Work. 

The British Academy writes: 

"Each year, BAFTA Scotland celebrates and rewards the diverse array of up-and-coming talent working within Scotland’s moving image industries. The British Academy Scotland New Talent Awards of 2015 featured 39 nominees from across the country. Judging panels made up of industry professionals considered hundreds of entries to decide the shortlist and winners for each of the 14 categories.

Steven Cameron Ferguson won the Camera/Photography award and then went on to win the prestigious Best New Work award, supported by Channel 4 – the final prize of the night, billed as a best-of-the-best award, as he was selected from among the 13 other category winners."

Steven is clearly a talent to be reckoned with and we wish him every success into the future.
