BAFTA-nominated cinematographer Sean Bobbitt shared his movie secrets when he visited students in Leeds.

Sean, who has been nominated for a BAFTA for his work on ‘12 Years a Slave’, gave Leeds Metropolitan University students an insight into the industry by hosting workshops and talks at the Northern Film School in Leeds.

Sean is best known for his work with Steve McQueen and has also shot for Spike Lee and Michael Winterbottom.

Student Chloe Newbigging said: “It’s virtually impossible to teach and advise the amount that Sean did in the two days that we spent with him but he did it! Having the privilege to ask him face-to-face as many questions as we liked and to talk about our own projects with him was mind-blowing.”
