Featured Alumni Profile
I was torn between studying Film & TV or English Literature & Politics. I opted for the latter as I felt it gave me a broader area of study, but I was always conscious of making sure my course choices were relevant to my career sector. I wanted to work in media and broadcasting and I felt that English Literature would give me a great foundation for a future career. I also opted for Politics, as I felt that current affairs would play a big part in my career as a filmmaker.
The best thing about the course, for me, was the opportunity to study abroad. I studied at the University of California for a year and it really was a life changing experience. I studied English Literature & Politics, but I was also accepted into their screenwriting programme. This led to me making two short films in California and I also wrote my first feature length screenplay, which was voted runner-up at the 20th Anniversary University of California Screenwriting Festival.
