A web series made by a 21-year-old Kimpton student has been nominated for an international award.
Bradley Page, who is currently studying film and television at the University of Hertfordshire, created sci-fi web series Element 186 as part of a module he took while previously studying film at Oaklands College.
The series has been nominated for Best Web Series at the fourth annual International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) which will be held on September 2 at Stratford Town Hall, Broadway, London.
Element 186 is the story of a young female explorer who, in a last chance to save the Earth, sets out on a deadly mission to retrieve the one element that could save humanity. Crashlanding on a distant planet, the explorer struggles to adapt to her surroundings and find a way to escape and find the element.
The film was made with the help of two other students: Myles Brown, who is the producer, editor, co-writer and sound designer, and Bethany Billy, who is the star of the series.
Element 186’s creators did not enter themselves into the competition, but were nominated by someone who saw the film and recognised its potential. It is up against stiff competition, including web series The Hood, which was created by BBC3, and another, Her Story, which was nominated for an Emmy.
Bradley’s series also won the Industry Panel Award at the UK Webfest in October 2016, and received special recognition for being created with only three people and having a limited budget of only £1,000. The panel then awarded the creators additional funding to expand on the series.
