Exeter College student brews up a storm to win Tetley Tea ad contest

AN Exeter College student’s advert about the joys of having a cuppa could be shown on national TV.
 Creative Digital Video student Joe Holohan, 19, won the Tetley Moving Image Competition with his animation that conveyed the message: ‘ Tea is Brilliant’.
The Foundation Degree student’s impressive work was chosen out of 150 entries from students all around the country.
Now Joe’s film will now be used as an advertisement on the Tetley website and possibly on TV in the near future.
He wins a Sony High Definition HDRSR8E Video Camera worth over £1000, the latest Sony VGN-AR41E Laptop plus a College Prize of the latest Sony High Definition HDRSR8E Video Camera, worth over £1000.
Judges deemed that Joe’s film had “demonstrated a technical ability and creative mind that brings the Tetley brand to life and captured the viewer’s attention throughout.”
Tomorrow, Friday, April 25, Brand Development Manager from Tetley, Peter Haigh, will visit Exeter College to present Joe with his prizes.
The former St Peter’s School student, from Richmond Road, Exeter, first began animating as a Film & Video A level student.
