Ryan McNulty, a third year filmaking student’s one minute documentary is up for winning a prestigious Sony Award.

We spoke to Ryan about creating his mini documentary focusing on Oxford Road, Europe’s busiest bus route.

“I chose the bus route because I saw that I only had a week to enter something and focusing on the bus route meant I could film everything while sticking to my daily routine.

“Sony responded really well to the idea, they thought it was unique to Manchester and the bus route was the perfect thing.”

Prizes for the award include a top of the range Sony PXW-FS7M2K camera, with runners up winning a Sony α7S II camera.

“Winning would be a great achievement and it would kick start my career by having top of the range equipment. It would also give me great help to make my final major film which will preview at the MSA Film Festival at HOME in June,” Ryan continued.

You can watch the film below and to help give Ryan a fighting chance for the top prize, all you have to do is give his film a like on Youtube.

Humanity Hallows are covering the MSA Film Festival later in the year, which will include Ryan’s “Final Major Film”. We’ll have more details in the next few months, so keep an eye out.
