Student success

Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, the animated Netflix series Love, Death and Robots, indie hit film Eaten by Lions, and blockbusters like Stan & Ollie and Bohemian Rhapsody; all created with the input of Futureworks graduates.

And that’s just the highlights. It’s been an impressive couple of years for Futureworks alumni, as they have played vital creative roles in some of the biggest hits to come out of the entertainment and media industry.

The Irishman picked up ten Oscar and five Golden Globe nominations, with Futureworks Alumni Verdiana Saint Amour completing a huge amount of dialogue editing and mixing for the film.

Jonathan Ching, a graduate, from our BA (Hons) Digital Animation with Illustration course, created environment concept art for several scenes on the animated Netflix series, Love, Death and Robots.

After graduating from our School of Sound & Music Production, Joe Nattrass worked on the multi-award winning Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. The film won four Oscars, including two for the sound department and has also picked up two Golden Globes and two BAFTAs (including one for best sound). Joe also worked on the Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly film, Stan & Ollie which was nominated for three Baftas.

Roisin Baxandall, a BA (Hons) Post Production for Film & TV graduate, gained a NATAS Sport Emmy Award nomination. She is a Video Editor at Red Bull in Salzburg and was nominated in the Outstanding Editing – Long Form category for the Red Bull Unleashed film.


Joe Laycock graduate of BA (Hons) Visual Effects worked on the recent hit BBC series Dracula in his role as a Junior VFX Editor.

British comedy film Eaten By Lions was described by The Guardian as “a thoroughly likable feelgood film”. Which was great news for Futureworks Alumni Andrew McKee who was the film’s editor. (Along with Futureworks graduates Enos Desjardins, Sound Designer and Sarah Strachan, Digital Imaging Technician).

And finally, we were recently visited by Anton Lesser, famous for his roles as Qyburn in Game of Thrones. He was here to be recorded by BSc (Hons) Audio Engineering & Production alumni Tavish Cross for a narration role in the film Tick Tick Tick.
