"Film School gave me an environment where I could work on my ideas. I know more about the kinds of films I want to make now, and I know a lot more about the industry than I did."
"The MA was a truly formative and professional program that elicited a range of skills that I had previously experimented with, but did not fully realize. With the hands-on and practical nature of the course and the challenge of producing real content through productions and exercises, I was able to express completely my filmic palette and get regular feedback on my ideas and the quality of my work. Through this experience, I created a body of work which I was proud of and ultimately could showcase my range and ambition. It was a program that pushed me on all levels."
