The Peter Lamont Award
Spotlighting New Talent Entries:

This award is supported by:

This award has been renamed in honour of Production Designer and BFDG member Peter Lamont, who sadly passed away in December 2020. Peter was always keen to help and support young talent in the Art Department and as this award’s intention is to highlight the future stars of the next generation of filmmakers the BFDG thought it would be a fitting tribute to dedicate this award to him. This year the award is supported by Netflix.

This category will be voted on by the BFDG committee only.
Certificates will also be given to all finalist nominees.

Ben Andrews

Junior Draftsperson

Ben is our set dec junior draftsman and is an immensely talented and hard working member of the team. His back ground is in theatre design and construction and he has used all of his skills from this previous career very skilfully in the world of film and television.He has a wonderful positive attitude and always takes initiative .His drawings are executed accurately and swiftly and he’s quick to think of solutions when any manufacturing issues arise. He is a great asset to any Set Dec department and I have no doubt he will do well.

Cleo Andriola

Art Department Assistant

Cleo joined my team straight after graduating from Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama last year for the 3rd season of A Discovery of Witches, she very quickly became a valued member of the team & was therefor offered a role on my next production, not only did she fulfil this assistant role (helping props dress sets / petty cash buying / keeping the office in supplies & managing my calendar)but also somehow managed to fill the role of junior draughtsman too (she’d done quite a bit of draughting on Witches but really stepped up on Inside Man).

Ella-Lucia Piccioni

Set Decorating Assistant

After 2 weeks work experience on a previous production I could tell that Ella had talent. An organised, calm, accommodating and highly creative girl, she has been able to apply herself to all tasks asked of her with enthusiasm and a high level of competency. Despite this being her first full job in the industry she shows an amazing level of understanding and initiative. No task too big or small and always completed with full commitment and a smile. Despite being in the Set Dec department she has aided and accomplished Art department tasks with ease. A true rising star.

Fran Tesei

Junior Model Maker

Fran has come into the industry from architecture and has in a VERY short time made a huge impact to our art department. Understanding and embracing the model requirements and constantly striving to embrace new technology and techniques.

Leah Brown

Art Department Assistant

Leah came to us directly from finishing her degree at Nottingham Trent. She is a delightful, calm, intelligent, inquisitive and kind young woman. Leah is an excellent member of the Art Department always ready to do whatever is requested of her. No job too menial. Her original love is for model making but she is proving to be a very promising draughtsperson. I think she has a really successful career ahead of her in the Art Department.

Mia Fardy

Petty Cash Buyer

Mia is a truly gifted person with a dedication to the Film Industry and Art Department that is inspiring. Mia has worked alongside Kate Venner, Ben Barrington Grove and myself for over four years in her own self created apprenticeship, which over time has demonstrated her passion for Architecture and Interior Design whilst showing her understanding and appreciation of her own craft within the Art Department and Set Decoration. I believe this makes her a worthy candidate to this award as it continues to spotlight the new generation of film makers which she and her exceptional talent are central too.

Rachel Buist

Junior Draughtsperson

I’ve known Rachel since she joined our team a few years ago as an Art Dept Assistant. Since making the move up to Junior Draughtsperson on our current project she has continued to grow her skills and has proved to be a reliable, talented and hard working member of the Art Dept. often taking on, (and successfully completing), several challenges at the same time without any complaint. She is now a Guild member and I have no doubt she’ll continue to be a valued member of any Art Dept in her future career.

Rob King

Junior Assistant Set Decorator

I first worked with Rob when he was a Set Dec Assistant. I was immediately impressed by his excellent research skills (both in efficiency and speed), his attention to detail and, most importantly, his keen interest in all aspects of the design process and his passion for the industry. Later, he started helping with dressing sets and came up with wonderful and original ideas. I recommended him as Assistant Set Decorator on Gangs of London (and I hear he did great). He is now on the new Star Wars series and I couldn’t be prouder of his promising career progress.

Sara Ortiz-Cortijo

Art Department Assistant

Sara started on “The Power” as an Art Department Assistant. Although she has several years experience as an Architect, this was her first Film or Television job. Sara has many fine qualities to bring to the Art Department, her drawing skills and her organisation, but her best quality is enthusiasm and dedication to the job, even in the most difficult circumstances. She was always ready to help and she provided an invaluable back up to the art dept. *She has since risen above her original position, but is only on her 2nd job in the industry. She is outstanding.
