This scholarship is available for the new BA (Hons) in Film making. It’s part of the dedication to seeing you kick-start your industry career in the strongest way possible.

Pope grew up in the north London suburb of Enfield. Both his parents were bankers, and he has a sister, Amanda. He always knew that he wanted to make films, boasting in an interview once, “Even my dreams came with dirt on them, like my Standard-8 movies”. He attended St Andrew’s primary school, Cecil Road, Enfield, and then went to St Michael’s boarding school in Otford, Kent, returning to north London to attend Latymer Grammar School, Haselbury Road. While still attending Latymer, he participated in the first-ever Film Studies O-level and was featured in the Evening Standard as “Tim Pope, aged seventeen, who wants to be a film director”. To achieve this aim, he began to attend Saturday morning film classes at Hornsey College of Art. Here he was able to experiment freely with cameras, spending much time photographing various happenings. His first school film was entitled Voyage, which was shot on a 16mm Bolex camera – and another equally absurd creation was the film Canine Excrement, where he is purported to have followed a dog around the then bombsites of Seven Sisters, waiting for the inevitable to happen. Pope applied to many film colleges, realizing that film was something he seriously wanted to devote his life to and having been turned down by many, he finally attended Ravenous College of Art & Design, Bromley. The course was more TV-oriented, and Pope achieved his highest course marks when a brief was set to create an idea for a piece of music. He chose Frank Zappa’s “I’m the Slime” from his album Overnite Sensation. When Pope left college, two years later, he found himself unemployable and, after a period of working for Williams & Glynn’s bank in Islington, he got his first job with HyVision, a company in Covent Garden that trained politicians to appear on TV. One of the many people he worked with, apart from Trevor McDonald, Melvyn Bragg, and others, was the then Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey, whom his boss, Stanley Hyland, trained to appear on the BBC’s Panorama program. Pope says that he left 10 Downing Street with the same camera and then went to Guildford to film the ska band The Specials on stage. Terry Hall, the lead singer, was later to be one of Pope’s many clients, as a pop promo director.

Tim Pope is a filmmaker who has worked across TV, documentaries, captured live concerts, created short films and has worked in Hollywood to direct “The Crow: City of Angles”.

The Institute will then follow your journey during your studies as you develop your craft, explore your creativity, and follow your passion. As a Scholarship winner, you will also have the exclusive opportunity on some mentoring sessions with Tim Pope.
