Meet the Tutors – Carlo Dusi

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 Carlo Dusi who teaches producing and the business side of filmmaking at Met Film School.
What/Which courses do you teach at the Met Film School?
I teach on the Professional Industry Practice module of the BA (Hons) Practical Filmmaking and the One-Year Practical Filmmaking, and on the evening Part-Time Producing course. I also run the occasional career planning and pitching and industry workshops for the Saturday Writers’ Course and a few other courses.



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

Having the opportunity to work with many talented, creative people is a great privilege!  



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

You can access my company’s web site at www.ariafilms.co.uk and can also see my credits on Imdb 



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

Teaching at the school is very stimulating, sometimes challenging, and always rewarding. My greatest challenge is to convince those amongst my students who do not want to be producers that an understanding of how the industry operates is an essential survival tool for anyone wanting to work in film, whether as a writer, director, head of department, or in any other role – and I’ll continue to do my best to get the message through!



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

Curiosity, hunger, talent, motivation, and an open mind.



Any useful tips for aspiring filmmaker?

Be very strategic in how you plan your career and how you choose (or conceive) your projects.


How can we get in touch with you? 

Through Moodle, the school, or my web site.
