Meet the Alumni – Teddy Cherim

By Cassio | Categorised in Alumni Interviews

Our Meet the Alumni series is designed to give you an insight into what our recent graduates are up to and their experience at the Met Film School. 

This week we meet Eduard Bruce (Teddy) Cherim from Amsterdam who studied the Met Film School intensive two-year degree.
Why did you choose your course at the Met Film School?

Because it was fast and hands on. It was in London, it was in the middle of the classic Ealing Studios and it sounded like fun, also it was the first BA in filmmaking I could find.



How would you describe your time at the School?

Inspiring. It inspired Kees (Kees Van Nieuwkerk) and myself not to be afraid, to write a script and try and get it produced.

What was the highlight of the course?

Probably all the productions courses. The courses where you actually had to make little shorts or direct little scenes. Also of course the final project module.

What were the advantages of being taught by industry professionals?

They aren’t like ordinary teachters. Between classes they are actively working on their own projects, which makes them more up to date. They’ll tell you:’ Here is the theory on this subject, but in my experience…’ That was great.



What projects have you worked on since completing your course?

Kees and myself wrote and directed our first feature film in Amsterdam. This film was released in 34 cities in Holland and Belgium. Since then we have shot a music video, a commercial and we are working to finish the script to our next feature.
