Why did you choose Reigate College?
The main reason was being able to combine Film, Media and Photography, which work brilliantly together.
What’s the difference between Film and Media?
Film is more academic – more like English Lit, in that you spend a lot of time analysing and critiquing films, though you do get to make films too, whereas Media is much broader and more hands on. You cover things like web-based media, news, magazines, ads, TV shows.
Tell us about your NFTS success
I was selected to attend a two week subsidised course at the National Film and TV School in Buckinghamshire and got to make a film with 10 other students.
Our film was then premiered at the South Bank on the last day of the course which was so much fun – especially as we got to invite friends and family along.
What do you like most about being a student at College?
Access to equipment! Film and Media students at the College are fortunate to have access to so much excellent equipment. Not only cameras and tripods, but special lenses, lights, gels, Mac suites and Final Cut Pro.
It means that you finish College having developed skills that make you instantly employable!
What are your plans for the future?
I have a place at Portsmouth to study Film but I’m going to hold off going next year. I’ve realised that I’m now really employable and want to see if I can get a job in Film instead.
Ultimately I’d like to work in Cinematography on a feature film.
