The Royal College of Art (RCA) has unveiled a new film by RSA Films’ Juriaan Booij to coincide with the launch of GenerationRCA, the most significant development in the history of the institution since it was founded in 1837.
The film celebrates every past, present and future generation of RCA students and staff, capturing a rare glimpse inside the creative worlds of luminaries including Ridley Scott, Tracey Emin, David Hockney, Thomas Heatherwick, Asif Kapadia, and James Dyson.
Juriaan Booij – director & RCA alumni said: “We’re proud to have partnered with the RCA on the creation of the GenerationRCA film – it encapsulates the uniqueness of the College and celebrates diverse individuals – from forward-thinking students to talented alumni and dedicated teachers – whose creativity has a transformational impact on the world.”
Of his experience of the RCA, Sir Ridley Scott commented: “To gain a place at the RCA in 1958 was significant – like it is today – but was also the result of an intense personal commitment to work, to challenge myself to improve and to persist in the face of sometimes difficult challenges. With our support, the College will provide the very best facilities and work spaces for students and will encourage a collaborative environment needed to cultivate the creative visionaries for the new and exciting opportunities of the future.”
