2008 Film Production graduate and freelance film director Rob Brown’s graduation film, Echoes, was named as Best Student Film at the Cine Gear Expo 2010 at Paramount Studios in Hollywood.

In a successful few months, Broadcast Magazine selected Rob as a director for their prestigious Broadcast Hotshots competition. Rob has also received a commission from the British Film Council’s Ideas Tap fund to make a £17,000 short film. Kevin Spacey was on the judging panel and presented Rob with the cheque during a ceremony at the Old Vic theatre, London.

Another film, Silent Things, produced with fellow AUB graduates Justin Brown, Nick Eriksson and John Bowen, won the New Arrivals Jury Award at the 40th International Film Festival Rotterdam.
