Meet the Tutors – Faye

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. 

Meet Faye Head of Camera, Light & Sound at Met Film School.
What/Which courses do you teach at the Met Film School?
I teach Cinematography on a variety of courses; I am lucky enough to meet most one and two year students in their first explorations with the camera and the lights and some of them again at a more advanced level.




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

Working as a team, telling a story and lighting. That’s three things, but they’re all part of the whole and are inextricably linked.




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

Here’s a bit about me and a link to my showreel is at the bottom.




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 working with the students, there is a huge variety of personalities and talents. Everyone has something to offer, my challenge is to give each one what they need in order for them to flourish. To see the masterpieces that are produced at the end of a module is utterly gratifying and leaves me feeling deeply, deeply proud.

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

Dedication, respect for fellow students, a sense of humour and passion.




Any useful tips for aspiring filmmaker?

Make the most of your opportunities, no one else can do it for you. This is not an easy business but if it’s for you then it can be truly wonderful.




How can we get in touch with you?
