Wimbledon Student Films 'Kes' Producer

Filmmaker Tony Garnett put on the spot

Wimbledon resident and budding filmmaker Julian Deane, aged 17, has enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put one of the media industry's most respected producers, Tony Garnett, on the spot.

Julian turned the camera on Tony, acclaimed producer of iconic films such as Kes and long-term collaborator of esteemed director Ken Loach, as he shared his experiences from over five decades of filmmaking as well as industry advice with BTEC Media students at DLD college in Marylebone.

Tony's inspiring talk was recorded by students and is now being edited to be posted on the college's YouTube channel.

Julian, who lives in Chester Road, Wimbledon, said: "Tony is one of the film and television industry's most respected producers, so asking for his advice and listening to his experiences was an invaluable opportunity.

"Being able to turn the camera on Tony was a unmissable moment and he was kind enough to offer us all some great advise on making our first steps into the industry.”

DLD College Principal Rachel Borland added: "As one of the UK’s most experienced and respected film producers, we were delighted to welcome Tony to the college to speak with our BTEC Media Production students.

"The students have certainly been inspired by Tony's visit which is the latest in a series of high-profile speaker events being hosted at the college as part of our BTEC Media Production course."
