Georgia Ayling | BAFTA Scholarship

Georgia Ayling, from Greenwich, London is awarded £5000 towards an MSc Music & Sound for Film & Games at The University of Hertfordshire. Georgia is being mentored by Darren Korb.

Having the recognition towards my work so far on a professional level means so much

From a very early age Georgia had a huge love for gaming, with it becoming one of her favourite pastimes. She spent most of her teenage years playing and performing music as a bassist in a number of different bands, and was lucky enough to play venues such as The Royal Albert Hall and Shepherds Bush Empire. Wanting to hone in on her performance and instrument technicality, she moved to Manchester in 2017 to study for her degree in Professional Musicianship. While studying in Manchester she found a greater love for composing music and sound design for the moving image, realising she could bring together her love for music and gaming into a career. Having had the opportunity to sound design and compose for an animated short film, she has now moved back to London to continue her studies at Masters level at the University of Hertfordshire.  

Georgia said: “Receiving the BAFTA Scholarship means so much to me at the start of my career. It is such a humbling experience and one that I am so grateful to have been given. Having the recognition towards my work so far on a professional level means so much, but also having the opportunity to undertake more work-based learning opportunities alongside my Master’s Degree is really exciting!”
