Most Promising Actor of the Year for 2015: Bernardo Santos
The chance to inhabit the world of a wide variety of characters is what interests StarCentral’s Most Promising Actor of the Year for 2015, Bernardo Santos, about the film industry. He could be in the 1940’s, looking “all smart and appropriate for that year and a week later I could be filming a new sci-fi Film and I get to play a zombie and look horrible and have blood dripping out of my face…”.
It is high points like those that fuel Bernardo’s desire to remain in the entertainment industry. He hopes to one day act alongside Hollywood’s A-list stars, travel to other countries and meet many other people who are as passionate about the craft as he is. Fully supported by his family, who he hopes to one day “earn enough to actually help my family…for them to stop working and live a more relaxed life and enjoy themselves…” The road to the bright lights of stardom is only beginning for this promising thespian, Bernardo Santos.
Jimbo - BFI Short film finalist
Synopsis: A caveman interrupts a photo shoot and finds out what women keep in their handbag.
Purpose: This film was produced for 'A Sense Of Humour' Elstree Film Design Competition 2016. The brief was to produce a short comedy film under 90 seconds in length.
Production: The 90 second short film was created over 10 weeks in the early Spring of 2016 in London. One of the challenges was finding a forest with bloomed trees. Unfortunately, most locations in London still had naked trees with no greenery. Luckily after visiting the 6th location we found the perfect spot to shoot!

british safety council short film finalist 2017
“Risk is the topic of the Young Filmmakers Competition 2017,” says Matthew Holder, Head of Campaigns at the charity, “because risk is what we are all about at the British Safety Council. And not only us. All of us think about the risks involved in any decision, where life’s highs and lows stem from the risks we take that turn good or bad. Of course, we’re subject to many kinds of risk – whether terrorism, environmental or personal – that are outside our control.
“For many years, film has been an important medium for the British Safety Council to get safety messages across to the public and workers. We now want to ask the next generation of filmmakers what risk means to them. What are the stories or events that illustrate the risks they face today? From terrorism, climate change and migration to cyber bullying, risky substances and the mental health pressures of modern life, risk comes in many shapes and sizes. A perfect subject for film.”
Our group made a Film about Climate Change, Global Warming. There were 47 entries from all around the world and our Film made it to the Top 5.
