"In which other university programme are you given the assignment to convince someone that they should give you their expensively equipped hospital ward for free, allow you to bring a cast and crew of 20 people along with a truck full of equipment, and permit you to turn everything upside down for two days?

While many film schools glamorise the industry, Goldsmiths opts for a very pragmatic approach: confronting you with what you actually need to learn is prioritised over distracting you with big names and famous faces. I never thought it was possible to learn so much in a year.

The diversity of individuals like ourselves, who come to Goldsmiths to put their talent to the test and join together in making something worthwhile, is a great resource which should not be underestimated."
