We spoke with School of Digital Arts (SODA) Filmmaking student, Jose Serra about creating his award-winning film, Casa.

While in his third year at SODA, Jose won Best Director for the film in an awards ceremony at HOME, judged by cinematic legends including director Danny Boyle, Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams and Shawshank Redemption cinematographer, Roger Deakins.

Jose’s short film Casa powerfully depicted his Portuguese family’s transition to a new life in England, through personal old home videos and recently filmed documentary footage.
