Chris Butler

Chris Butler won the BBC Blast and BAFTA Screen-skills Bursary Competition for teenagers whilst studying his BTEC in Media Production at Stoke on Trent College.

This led to a £3,000 bursary and the opportunity for his films to be shown at the prestigious Royal Television Society Awards Ceremony.

Chris said:
“To have this success at this stage in my life is unreal. Stoke on Trent College gave me the room to experiment and really refine my editing skills.

“I would definitely recommend the media department to anyone who was thinking of applying. My lecturers were always encouraging and supportive.”

Chris is now at Bournemouth University studying TV Production.
