Jamie Thraves visits the Department

On Wednesday 7th March, Film Director Jamie Thraves visited the Department. He led a directing masterclass for students specialising in film practice in the morning, in the Film & Television Studio of the Minghella Building. In the afternoon there was a Q&A in The Cinema for a wider audience, during which Thraves discussed a sequence of his film The Cry of the Owl (2009), talked about his approach to directing more generally, and answered questions on his pop promos, including the famous video for the Radiohead song Just.

Thraves’ most recent feature, Treacle Jr (2010), is now available on DVD, or to rent or purchase from iTunes.
