Saxon Video on Course for Awards

Saxon Rix, a third year student at University Centre Doncaster, has been shortlisted for an award by the British Student Film Festival 2012.


Saxon, 23, who is currently studying for an honours degree in Moving Image Production, produced a music video called ‘Mindblind’. It was entered into the music category of the competition and is one of only three productions to be picked from thousands across the country.


Saxon, from Askern near Doncaster, recently completed the video as part of a course module called ‘Externally Set Brief’ in which he produced the music video for a track produced by a fellow University Centre Doncaster student, Jamie Shield.


"We had to put the video into a festival as part of the module. I didn’t expect it to be shortlisted but I feel pretty good about it," said Saxon.


Saxon got his inspiration from science fiction. "I'd used other genres in other films this year so wanted to do something different and the music from Jamie had a sci-fi edge to it."


The video was shot over three days, between breaks in the rain, and Saxon used fellow students as actors.


‘Mindblind’ will be shown at screenings in London, Liverpool, Bristol and Newcastle and judges will decide the winners in each category at the Award ceremony in London on the 27th April.


The British Student Film Festival is a digital student film exhibition that showcases the work of school, college and university students. Student’s coursework is given the chance to challenge views and the festival celebrates British creative, vocational output.


Independent Newspaper is sponsoring the festival and ‘Mindblind’ can currently be viewed on their website.
