    I had mine for Film Production 2 weeks ago, at the time i was really nervous too but theirs no need! Honestly its really chilled. Once they collect the group of interviewees you get taken to the cinema room and they show you past students work and you're encouraged to chat with the group.

    In the actual interview it's pretty much a friendly chat. The staff all seem really kind and professional, I didn't at all feel as though I was being interviewed. They'll ask what you've brung with you to show, you'll show it, they may ask what you'd improve about the work, and they'll just discuss film with you: what specifically you like about film, any aspects you're interested in learning (for me cinematography), your favourite director, your favourite film, etc.

    It honestly felt like a chat with a friend. I'm sure you'll be fine and have fun.

    I took a short film I made, 2 of my best pictures from my photography and some preproduction work from the short film.

    They didn't really look at the written stuff, I think they're more looking into your passion for film and work you've already done.

    Yeah I never got the opportunity to take media or film at school so I guess I'm a bit disadvantaged, and I don't even know about this workshop whatever. Probably just an informal dress or something! I went to an interview at UCA and no one was formal
