MA students work with Sir Ian McKellen on short film

By Cassio | Categorised in Alumni Interviews

Our MA students work alongside each other to produce an industry project for an external client.  For one group of students, that meant directing and filming Sir Ian McKellen for Stonewall’s 25th anniversary promotional short this year!

Watch the film in full here!

Martha McGuirk was producer, Ren Perirea was the screenwriter and Julia Hostetler was editor on the film. Paloma Lommel directed.

What Stonewall say:

“I just have to say that the film is truly excellent- thank you so much,  I have no doubt that promoting this film will mean direct engagement with new audiences, which is thanks to you and your wonderful film.” Michelle Booth, Project Manager at Stonewall

What Students say:

“I feel very privileged that Met Film School gave me the opportunity to direct Stonewalls 25th anniversary video.  It was definitely a great opportunity for my future career and it was very exciting to direct Sir Ian McKellen, co-founder of Stonewall.  I hope the film encourages more people to support organisations such a Stonewall.”

Paloma Lommel, MA Directing, 2014
