University so far
I joined UWE Bristol in 2020 as a 1st year student in filmmaking. Although the pandemic has restricted this experience, I’ve found it extremely enriching to navigate this uncertain time with my fellow creatives. We’ve made some beautiful pieces of art, even from the constraints of isolation. This has included my first professional and budgeted short film ’32 Voicemails’ which will be out soon.
I’ve found my first year interesting for various reasons. It’s been very interesting to begin to understand the use of professional equipment, as I’ve not had access to this before. It’s also been great to start looking into professional practice, and how much forward planning is actually involved in industry standard work. I never before understood how much work goes on in pre-production, so that has been enlightening to look at.
