"Goldsmiths gave me great practice in research whilst letting me research what I was interested in. The tutors and lecturers I chose to discuss my courses with were very attentive to where I wanted to go and encouraged me to try out various methods of researching and of looking at things. I met people from all over, including the members of staff, and this was beneficial on all grounds. I have made myself a good network from all around the world and in many different fields of work, which is fascinating and useful too.
I'm currently interning on a short documentary about white males and females who have dreadlocks in South London. The doc will observe their experience in areas where dreadlocks are strongly associated to the Rastafarian community. The aim is to give an idea of cross-cultural relationships in South East London and also to discuss individualism in London. I've assisted all aspects of the pre-production, and have been in charge of archive research, general biographical research, locating potential interviewees, etc. I've also participated in a more creative aspect too by helping the director tab entire folders of transcripts we got from the various interviews."
