After leaving Bolton School in the summer of 2015, Old Boy Oliver Hill went to study Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne University London. He recently graduated with a first.

While at university, he wrote and directed a short film ‘Parasomniac’: the photos accompanying this article show him working behind the scenes on this and also feature some stills from the film itself. Oliver is currently preparing to shoot another short film in early 2020.

In between working on his own projects, Oliver has been a runner on several larger-scale productions. Most notably, he spent a few months at Pinewood Studios working on the latest James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’, which is due to release in April of next year. He has also worked on a new HBO programme ‘The Third Day’ starring Jude Law, also due for release next year, as well as Netflix comedy feature film ‘Eurovision’ starring Will Ferrell, the second season of Amazon Prime’s ‘Hanna’, Hulu period drama ‘The Great’ and Apple+ comedy show ‘Ted Lasso’.
