“The course has been an excellent step towards working in the professional world. Everything that is expected of a cinematographer in today’s world is being taught, so there’s no doubt in my mind about getting myself out into the industry. I’ve met some incredible people during my time at Met Film School, and feel better equipped in starting a career in cinematography.”

Ben Calloway, MA cinematography, 2015
