Staffordshire graduate scoops honours at Royal Television Society Awards 2017


A Staffordshire University graduate has been honoured at this year’s Royal Television Society awards.

Giorgia Perini celebrated winning two awards – ‘Student short Feature’ and ‘Craft Skills: Production Design’ for her #Jumpfrompaper.

The awards took place at the National Motorcycle Museum and were hosted by Nick Owen and Bob Warman.

Giorgia (pictured), aged 24, said: “I made it myself.

“I found the brand, I built the idea, I shot it. I tried to do most things because it was my final idea project.

“I want to say thank you to my family because they helped me a lot.

“I also really need to thank my tutor and all the people from Staffordshire University.

“I found the staff really helpful for everything.”

These included:

• Liam Young won ‘Student Comedy & Entertainment’ with ‘The Ketchup Conspiracy’
