Meet the Tutors – Emma Lindley

By Cassio | Categorised in Industry Interviews

Our Meet the Tutor series is designed to give you an insight into our tutors and their experience at the Met Film School. 

This week we meet Emma Lindley who teaches acting and directing at Met Film School
What/Which courses do you teach at the Met Film School?
I teach directing on the BA programme, and acting on the coursesIntroduction to Acting for Film, Acting for Film Level 1 and  Acting for Film Level 2.



What is one thing about your field of expertise or filmmaking in general that excites you? 

I believe that although you can’t ‘teach’ talent you can teach people the skills to express their best selves on camera.




Do you have any links to your past/current projects (youtube link, url)?

I am a freelance TV producer and director, for clips and news see my websitewww.emmalindley.net



How would you describe your time teaching at the School?  What do you think is the most challenging element of the course you teach?  

I love teaching at the Met as it informs my own work as a director and because it is a real community of film makers.


The most challenging element of class – for students and teachers – is to be 100 percent present in every conversation and in every exercise! But it’s how you get results…



What are the key attributes you look for in a student?

Positivity. Punctuality (boring but it counts!). Preparation and focus.



Any useful tips for aspiring filmmaker?

Be positive. Be proactive. Listen to other people and then listen to yourself. Keep making films.



How can we get in touch with you?
