An award winning visitor

Oscar and BAFTA winner Tim Cavagin visits Mayhill

On Thursday 14th March, we were excited to welcome the award winning (and local!) Tim Cavagin to Mayhill to hear about his experience, and success, in the film and music business.

Tim, a resident of Odiham, brought his BAFTA and Oscar trophies into our singing assembly for the children to hold (they were heavier than they looked). Tim answered questions about his aspirations as a child and the skills needed to get to where he is today - an award winning re-recording mixer for films such as, 'The Others', 'World War Z', 'Baby Driver' and  2018's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' for which he won his BAFTA and Oscar. We learnt that he dreamt of being a footballer and a rock star, but an opportunity led him in a different direction - the film industry. Our Mayhill Habits were a key focus for questions, as he told us how they were all equally important within his job; the children were certainly left with food for thought about their skills, especially collaboration and resilience. 

An inspiration to all of us - never give up, learn from your mistakes and make them into positives. 

Thank you Tim - Mayhill  are always available if you need some singers for the next film you work on!
