Film and music video director Prano Bailey Bond visited Long Road to give a music video masterclass to Year 2 Level 3 Applied Media students.
Prano “grew up on a diet of Twin Peaks” in Wales. Her work invokes imaginative worlds, fusing a dark vocabulary with eerie allure, revealing how beauty resides in strange places. Prano has worked with Film4, Film London, Sony Music, Atlantic Records and Adam & Eve DDB, amongst others. Her work has been recognised at events and festivals including the BFI London Film Festival, Slamdance, Tampere Film Festival, ASFF, UKMVA’s, LSFF and European Independent Film Festival. Her short film NASTY has screened at over 90 festivals to-date, was long-listed for the BIFA Best British Short Award and voted one of the Top 25 horror shorts of 2016 by Fright Meter Awards. Prano is currently developing two feature films, both of which are supported by Ffilm Cymru Wales and produced by Silver Salt Films. She is on the Advisory Board for Underwire Festival, a member of Cinesisters. She is also an award-winning editor.
