Getting into the film industry can feel sometimes feel like Mission Impossible – there seems to be so much competition, you have to prove you are stronger, more skilled and better prepared than the rest. At Met Film School, our philosophy is that if you have the passion for film and a real desire to jump into practical and intensive training, a career in filmmaking is waiting for you.

As the summer approaches and many of you are still undecided about where you’ll find yourselves this time next year, we hear from Met Film School student Mara, who is in her first year of our BA (Hons) Practical Filmmaking programme.

Mara knew that she wanted to study filmmaking, but was faced with a minefield of choice when it came to looking at Universities in the UK. “The course is very practical, as its name suggests.” She states. “Theory is deeply connected to practice, and this is one of the reasons why I chose Met Film School over others in the UK or USA. There are also amazing tutors here, all of whom worked or are still working in the industry as professionals.”

But it isn’t just the industry-professional tutors that sets Met Film School apart. Met Film School is also based at Ealing Studios, the worlds-oldest continually running studio. “Being part of something at a proper, working film studio is really exciting,” Mara added. “Incredible films have been made over the years.” These include the recent Oscar-winning film The Theory of Everything and TV series Downton Abbey.
