DLD BTEC Media Production students interview Tony Garnett 

DLD student Julian Deane, enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and turned the camera on Tony Garnett,  acclaimed producer of iconic films such as Kes and long-term collaborator of esteemed director Ken Loach, as Alireza Kamali asked him about his experiences from over five decades of filmmaking.

Tony’s inspiring talk was recorded by students using our state-of-the-art filming equipment and is now on our own YouTube channel.

Julian 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 London Principal Rachel Borland said, “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.”
