    Has anyone done either of these two courses and if so what did they think? My aim is to get into feature film directing as hard as that is, whilst learning other skills such as editing to provide me with a career whilst I try to achieve my overall goal. I may also like to get into the National Film and Television School after a first degree. Goldsmiths lets you specialise in film and you can also do some screenwriting. Westminster makes you specialise the second and third years in one craft e.g. directing, you can't write and direct your own shorts and you may not be able to specialise in your prefered discipline due to the competition. You shoot more films at Westminster, about double but then their is the reputations to consider. A University of London Degree may be worth more and its probably more fun at goldsmiths. Also the theory at Westminster is more film specific than goldsmiths which is more general media in the first two years letting you be specific to film in the third year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
