What employers say about MetFilm School students…

 

Just to say a big thankyou for sending us two students for work experience. They both got really stuck in and asked plenty of questions. We hope to hire them over the summer on some of our broadcast and corporate shoots.

Beagle Media

 

MetFilm Futures tends to be our first port of call when looking for junior/mid-experienced crew.

London Film Productions

 

We ended up with three MetFilm School students in our studio over the past six months, and the experience has been really good – thankyou!
