Melody Sylvester

Head of RSA Design & Animation/Executive Producer, RSA Films London

It’s a real pleasure and honour to be a part of the The British Arrows 2017 Jury. The even bigger and better combined awards.  I’m always happy to be involved with something that acknowledges the art of what we do and the sheer effort it takes to create stand out work. Plus, I get to hang out with David Kolbusz…
