Former University of Westminster student, Sam Care, was hand-picked by a panel of industry experts to represent British talent at BAFTA’s ‘Brits to Watch’ event in Los Angeles on 9 July.

The event celebrated the breadth and depth of creativity emerging from today’s British film talent. BAFTA’s president, HRH The Duke of Cambridge and HRH The Duchess of Cambridge attended the event while on their ten-day whistle-stop tour of the United States and Canada.

Sam Care attended the University of Westminster studying Film and Television Production from 2002 to 2005 and now works as a cinematographer. Sam was selected to attend the event based on the extraordinary talent that he has displayed at an early stage in his career.

Peter Hort, course director of the Film and Television Production BA Honours at the University of Westminster, said: “It is fantastic to see one of our students receiving recognition at such a prestigious event. Using the skills that he developed at the University, Sam is carving a very successful career for himself in what is a very competitive industry”.

Sam Care added: “Going to the University of Westminster and studying Film & TV Production was an essential part of me becoming a professional film-maker and inspiring me to become a cinematographer. The course gave me a good grounding in narrative storytelling, and the technical skills needed to get my first job as a cinematographer”.
