RTS Award

We’re very pleased to announce that our 3D Animator Ben Cameron has won this year’s Royal Television Society ‘Rising Star’ Award.

At the swanky ceremony at the Hilton Hotel, Newcastle, hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern, Ben received his award following a nomination by our Creative Director, Kevin Owens, for showing an enthusiasm and commitment above and beyond the role and a demonstration of huge talent (check out his work on the Easigrass and Frank’s the Flooring Store TV commercials.)

Ben said:

"It was a nice surprise to win, particularly when we saw the standard of the other nominees. It was a great night and the team celebrated with a few beers.

Winning the award has helped me to put things in perspective. I’ve worked in industry for a relatively short amount of time, and in lots of ways was still in the mindset of a student, where you play around with ideas without a set goal in mind. Working with YourFilm has meant working to specific briefs, with deadlines and with a clear goal for the clients.

That has made the creative challenge and rewards even greater.

Looking to the future, I’m excited about working on even more exciting and challenging briefs."

YourFilm MD, Matthew Newman said:

"We’re delighted that Ben won the RTS Award and feel it was much deserved. His work, attitude and drive to learn has been second to none. Ben, like all of our employees, shows a great desire to learn and to continually develop his craft.

We’re experiencing an increasing demand for both 2D and 3D animation from our clients, and in part it’s due to the diversity and quality of our portfolio. In terms of return on investment, animation can often provide more ‘bang for your buck'.

I expect our animation portfolio to continue to grow this year, especially as we continue to expand our presence in Manchester and London."
