SSR Manchester - SSR gets cheeky at The Oscars
SSR gets cheeky at The Oscars
SSR partner Karen Milligan attended the Oscars in LA recently to secure an exclusive interview with Slumdog Millionaire’s Director Danny Boyle. Karen (Cheeky Media Managing Director) freelancing for ITV Granada, joined her former colleague Granada Reports' Entertainment Correspondent, Caroline Hacking to track down Danny, winner of ‘Best Director’ for his film Slumdog Millionaire.

The cheeky pair secured an exclusive interview with Danny, poolside at his hotel in Beverly Hills........ and later managed to track him down at a showbiz bash in L.A. where Caroline finally got her hands on the famous Oscar statue.

Karen was delighted with the interview which was broadcast across UK news networks the same day. Karen rang SSR from LA to confirm that our students will be able to use her footage to practice their editing skills.

Karen is the joint course leader for SSR’s TV Freelance Training Project (The TVF Project) as well as one our key creative partners for our TV and film courses.

SSR principal Ian Hu
"SSR’s industry contacts and creative partners give our students access to real world material and professional practice that gives them that vital cutting edge when it comes to securing work in this highly competitive industry."
