Released: 26.04.12

Documentary film-makers from UCP Marjon’s Sports Media and Journalism programme picked up an award this week for ‘best runner up’ in the The Broadcast Journalism Training Council annual awards with their film Glen Crawley: Being Captain Calamity.

The awards ceremony was held in London and the third year students were thrilled to be there.  Sasha Titball, one of the students said “We were really nervous about collecting the award because there were lots of really important people from the industry there but it all went OK and everyone really liked our film.”

The module is run during the second year of the media programmes by lecturer and film-maker Stuart Moore. “Awards like this help to highlight the high standard of work that the our media students produce at UCP Marjon. Glen Crawley: Being Captain Calamity looks at the Cornish sailor behind the tabloid headlines. The team of Daniel Butler, Connor Dicks, Lewis Edwards and Sasha Titball worked professionally and creatively to produce a very watchable film they can be proud of.”
