What our graduates say

Name: Chao Lu,
Course: MA film making

"Kingston MA film making is very practical. I learned so much about cinematography, lighting, directing and so on. It gave us film knowledge and opportunities to make films and develop our own style.I have to say Kingston provided us with very high-level film equipment. I really like Film Writing module. It gave us a long time to write and rewrite our screenplay. A good script cannot be good without rewriting and rethinking."

Name: Konstantinos Yiakoumi
Course: MA film making

"For me being a student at Kingston University was one of the best experiences that i have had so far in my academic studies. The course provided me the fundamental knowledge in understanding storytelling in filmmaking and how important the collaboration between students and also other people who are willing to create compelling stories through filmmaking are.What i really liked about the course was the help and support that we had throughout the year from our teachers, the atmosphere and enthusiasm for the success of your students. With that being said one of the best experiences was how we created amazingly strong relationships with other students that are from all over the world. Having that bond with other students helped me learn more in depth whether it was by asking for help but also giving my support and knowledge where it was needed or when it was asked and that made the entire experience unforgettable."
