Women in Film and Television UK has presented the Elouise Carden Rising Star Award for Post Production to Glassworks’ Daniela Rotaru.

The award, in partnership with Viacom International Studios, was given at the WFTV Summer Party at Picturehouse Central, Soho; in partnership with Formosa Group.

The Award, which recognises outstanding work by an early career woman working in post production, was presented to Daniela Rotaru, a Junior Colourist at Glassworks. As the winner of this award, Daniela will receive a £2,000 bursary which can be used for training, professional development and equipment to further her career in post production.

Rotaru started at Glassworks began as a runner before becoming a colour assistant and , after two years of training, became a Junior Colourist with her own grading suite.

This is the second year of the award. Elouise Carden, who sadly passed away in 2020, was the joint Managing Director and Co-Owner of both Rapid Pictures and Radiant Post Production. Elouise was passionate about nurturing new talent in the industry, and in particular women working in post production. This award is in honour of Elouise and will continue the work she started.

WFTV CEO Katie Bailiff said ‘It’s a great pleasure to be able to shine a spotlight on an area of the industry where women remain unrepresented. This award recognises and celebrates the new generation of women who are coming up through the post production pipeline – Daniela, a junior colourist, is a true rising star and we’re delighted she’s this year’s winner.’

Formosa Group, UK MD, Helen Alexander said, “We’re thrilled to have partnered with WFTV and support their Summer Party for 2023.

A huge congratulations to all the nominees and winner of the Elouise Carden Rising Star Award in Post Production, Daniela Rotaru. It’s great to see such amazing talent being recognised as the future stars of our industry.’
