Rochelle Simpson
Nottingham Young Creative Of The Year 2019.

17 year old Rochelle Simpson won the Young Creative of the Year for her short film Catch 22. 

Rochelle’s film is a dramatised film about a knife murder in Nottingham. Rochelle was presented with the award by Nottingham actor Harry Gilby, who is fresh from his success in the movie Tolkien, in which he plays Tolkien as a young man. The awards night also included young people winning awards across all 11 categories.

The judges praised Rochelle’s film as a mature look at a very serious subject. Her technique, use of scene changes, darkness, memory and flashbacks are highly professional. She produced a memorable film for which she can be justifiably proud. 2019 has been a great year for the Young Creative awards as it saw another bumper crop of entries.

Awards were presented in eleven categories, all of which were of the highest quality, with one coming through to be the Nottingham Young Creative of the Year.

Events over the Summer will involve young winners and showcase the winning entries, watch out for detail in social media and on this website.
