Highly experienced producer of wildlife documentaries and series, Paul Reddish, has been appointed to run the National Film and Television School MA in Directing Natural History and Science. Paul has been Producer and Director across a number of high profile natural history films and series including Attenborough in Paradise, The Future is Wild, Hummingbirds Jewelled Messengers, and many more.
Reddish says: “It is a privilege to run the new Directing Natural History and Science MA at the NFTS, which has an incredible reputation for building careers and industry leaders. I love to encourage and mentor new talent and I can’t wait to meet and start working with the students!”
Nik Powell, NFTS director says: “We are incredibly honoured that Paul has accepted the position of running our Directing Natural History and Science course. He is extremely experienced and the students who are lucky enough to gain a place will receive enormous benefit from his tutelage.”
The two year course will equip students with the skills required to direct science, natural history and wildlife productions and the know-how to produce entire shows. Whether it’s using ultra long lenses or aerial, macro or time lapse photography, the students will build a wide portfolio of experience bespoke to wildlife programme making.
As with all NFTS courses, the MA is both hands on and practical and students will benefit from work placements at the UK’s major wildlife production companies.
Applications for the Directing Natural History and Science MA are open until October 13th 2016 and the course will commence in January 2017.
