film making MA: What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

A selection of students spoke about the Film Making MA and what they gained from the course:

 

Name: Chao Lu
Course: Film Making MA

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 film sand 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: Film Making MA

"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 film making and how important the collaboration between students and also other people who are willing to create compelling stories through film making 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." 

 

Name: Freddie Osborne
Course: Film Making MA

"I took the Film Studies BA at Kingston and found myself captivated by both the practical and theoretical side of the degree. I'd previously leaned more towards practice, but I found that the theory definitely made me a better film maker, and helped me to appreciate both form and content. The team supported me in submitting an application for AHRC funding and I was delighted to be awarded a full MA scholarship.

"I am currently on the Film Making MA and planning a PhD. I am motivated by the idea that everyone should be represented in cinema. This belief guides both my theoretical enquiries and my whole approach to practice. As a continuing student, I value Kingston's film department because I feel part of a genuine community of scholars and practitioners. I can get support and ideas from anyone in the department, not just my supervisors. Everyone is a resource, with an eclectic and invigorating range of specialist expertise."
