BFI Academy success for media student Rikesh

Monday 3 August 2015

BTEC Level 3 Media student Rikesh Tailor is celebrating after winning a place on the prestigious BFI Academy scheme. The talented eighteen-year old won the place after submitting examples of his work and writing about why he’d like to join the famous academy. He then went on to create an award winning documentary that secured him a BAFTA mentorship with famous cinematographer, Taina Galis.

“It’s been an unbelievable few months that have seen my knowledge and experience of the industry really grow,” Rikesh said. “Being part of the BFI Academy has enhanced my CV and I’ve loved creating work with people of a similar age who all share the same passion for film making.”

“Having the opportunity to work one-to-one with Taina is also incredible. She’s a huge name in the industry and a real inspiration.”

Rikesh, who achieved a triple distinction in his BTEC, now plans to study a BSc in Film Production Technology at Birmingham City University.
