British Film dominates the 2014 BAFTA Awards
Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity picked up multiple awards including for Best Visual Effects in Film, Best British Film and Best Cinematography at last night’s BAFTA Awards.
We’re especially proud of Met Film School visual effects graduate Shannon Moran, who has recently launched her career working for FrameStore – the company responsible for the amazing effects in the film.

The other big winner of the night was British director Steve McQueen’s 12 Year’s a Slave which won the prestigious Best Film Award, as well as scooping up the prize of Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor (beating Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale to the award.)
Other winner’s include Joshua Oppenheimer’s chillingly powerful The Act of Killing (for Best Documentary) and Cate Blanchett, who went on to win Best Leading Actress for her captivating turn in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. Young British Actor Will Poulter stole the show as EE Rising Star winner, the only award to be voted for by the public.
