Local media student produces first professional production
PRLog - Sep. 14, 2011 - Local film maker and Warwickshire College student Tom Badger has completed his first commissioned work for one Stratford's leading visitor attractions. Tom (23) has worked at the Falstaff Experience Tudor World for 3 years as a general assistant. However, with the skills learnt on his film making course Tom was given the chance to produce the online advert for the Falstaff Experience. The advert can be viewed by following the link from the museums website www.falstaffexperience.co.uk. Student Tom also makes an acting appearance in the commercial as Robert Dudley, favourite of Queen Elizabeth I. Working alongside the museums senior management team, Tom followed a tight brief to deliver an advert that is exciting, informative and very different. The Falstaff Experience has a proud record of providing their staff with chances to shine. At the Stratford Fringe Festival Saturday shop girl Nikki Guest was given the museums theatre space to perform her 'Songs from the Shows Spectacular'. Creative Director Janet Ford said: "A museum is a place of learning. It does not however always have to be academic. We were delighted to provide Tom with the chance to develop in his desired vocation. Since taking over the museum we have found that by giving young talent a chance we get superb results. It is has been a pleasure watching Tom develop over the years and we are extremely proud of the work he has produced for us. After all, it could be that this is his first step on the road to stardom.
