Katie Comerford (BA Art Practice, 2010) moved to Italy following Goldsmiths to work on her art practice. Her studio is based in Latina and was remodelled by Katie and renovated from a disused garage. Katie describes her time at Goldsmiths as an important experience for the growth of her art practice – a huge challenge that was inspiring and satisfying.

Lucio Casellato (MA Screen Documentary, 2011) found work as a video reporter and cameraman while he was at Goldsmiths. Working and studying at the same time proved to be intense, but very rewarding. After graduating and having completed his first documentary thanks to Goldsmiths, finding a full-time job was no problem. Lucio started to work for Dida Media, a video production company, where he gained a lot of real-world experience and valuable skills filming corporate videos and trailers for clients such as the LSE, the British Sociological Association and many others. Lucio is now back in school at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, Italy’s national film school. Only eight applicants are accepted into the programme every year, but thanks to his invaluable experience in London and at Goldsmiths Lucio made it and has just started studying to become a DoP.
