Is Hertfordshire good for Film & Television Production?Watch
Of course, I'm not the best person to be replying to your post but I thought I'd put in my two cents Good luck with your decisions (I'm in the same boat and I know it's not easy!)
hi! I'm a first year doing film & television, so far it's been good. You do three main pieces in first year, including a 3 minute documentary, 3 minute drama and a 10 minute live panel show. you're put into groups for first year which gives you a chance to mingle, and you choose your roles (producer, director, DOP, sound rec/mix, set design/lighting, editor/AD, script etc).only downside to Herts is that it's in hatfield. but the course is great! the lecturers are amazing, all work in the industry and some know some pretty damn famous people and worked on their films. Herts is close to Elstree studios which is great- you get to see a live show in first year and also get the opportunity to attend Cannes festival with the university first year as well! if you have any more questions, please ask!
For collaborating, we often get emails from tutors letting us know about projects that 2nd&3rd year students are doing, all you have to do is go! also, there are a few events where you can meet the older students and through that way you are effectively networking; so they'll ask you to run and their own projects too.
directing: we haven't had a directing module this year, no, but that might come in the future or with guest lectures
sorry for the late reply!
