What our graduates say

Check out what our graduates have gone on to do and how studying at Kingston helped them achieve their goals.

Kathryn Attrill

Name: Kathryn Attrill
Course: Filmmaking BA(Hons)

"Studying the filmmaking course at Kingston has allowed me to develop a variety of skills. I have gained an understanding of filmmaking style, authorship and different approaches during my practice. I developed directorial skills whilst working with performance and non-actors during the Actorplasm project. I also gained an interest in editing through the access to post-production equipment and workshops with industry professionals. The process of pitching ideas to our peers has also drastically improved my confidence levels when presenting. In my final year, I was able to put the skills I had learned on the course into practice through a commission with Stop Play Record."

 

Ada Wesolowska

Name: Ada Wesolowska
Course: Filmmaking BA(Hons)

"During my time at Kingston, I discovered through research and practical filmmaking my thematic interests and allowed me to shape my practice into a more concentrated direction. I also got the opportunity to expand my passion for the analogue film through workshops, producing films on 16mm film, and during my work experience as film checker at LUX.

"Kingston has allowed me to explore different modes of filmmaking and expand on my skills through crewing on many postgraduate films, where I participated as a camera operator, producer and sound recordist. I gathered a better understanding of the production process and gained skills in multiple disciplines thanks to the practical structure of the course."

 

Kadar Kahie

Name: Kadar Kahie
Course: Filmmaking BA(Hons)

"Whilst studying filmmaking I have not just developed skills, but have grown as a person. The course has taught me to question myself and my methods of producing films, and guided me to make the films I enjoy making. This has resulted in me falling in love with every aspect of filmmaking.

"On the course I have had work experience at post-production facility house Suite TV, created promotional videos for the university, and been a mentor to other students. I have also had my films screened at the BFI which has been amazing - to see my films on the big screen."

 

Oliver Endersby

Name: Oliver Endersby
Course: Filmmaking BA(Hons)

"Studying filmmaking at Kingston University has been an experience that has allowed me to develop as a filmmaker in a creatively engaging environment. I have learnt a variety of skills in research and idea development as well as technical skills working within the limits of camera equipment and sound design. The course has given me many opportunities to expand my filmmaking practice, such as an internship at Fly Film where I was granted a deeper insight into production and distribution. I was also able to develop my first commissioned work through the Stop Play Record scheme for young artist filmmakers."

"Studying filmmaking at Kingston University has prepared me for the industry with a range of skills from set building to colour grading. The course caters to both digital and analogue processes and has allowed me to experience the physical nature of the medium. I have had lots of rewarding experiences like an internship at the BFI and had my films screened at the BFI and Genesis Cinema. I have also worked on independent films as a runner which has provided me with professional experience."

 

In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. 

As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:

  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.

In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
