MA Students produce film for Jamie Oliver’s Restaurant ‘Fifteen’

By Cassio | Categorised in News, Student Stories, Film News

A group of Met students studying across our postgraduate courses recently worked with Jamie Oliver’s London ‘non-profit’ restaurant Fifteen to produce a promotional video for their food tube channel.

The film aims to showcase Fifteen’s fresh and rustic philosophy towards food by giving insight into where the produce is sourced, and how the chefs get their inspiration from the restaurant’s farm.  Fifteen is part of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, which works in schools, teaching children about the joys of growing and cooking fresh food. The foundation also have a Fifteen Apprentice Programme, where they train disengaged young people for careers in the restaurant industry.

The project was part of the ‘Integrated Project’ module, where postgraduate students work in groups to create a piece of original video content, from pitching an idea to a client to presenting a finished product to an external client.  The short video was directed by Hendrik Elstein (MA Directing), written by Sebastián Lapidus (MA Screenwriting) and the Director of Photography was Eric Yuhico (MA Cinematography). Previous students also worked on the project, with sound by Sarah Yule (BA Practical Filmmaking) & the project was edited by Carl Troedsson (MA Postproduction).
