MA Directing

Overall Rating

The overall experience was positive. I got the opportunity to meet talented students that are now my colleagues and we work together. I had the chance to attend interesting masterclasses. Finally I got the chance to develop my filmmaking skills and craft in London.

Uni Facilities

The University facilities and equipment have improved a lot since I left.
The buildings have been renovated, there are more editing and sound studios and the quantity and quality of the equipment have improved too.

Course and Lecturers

Positives: Good teachers, interesting course structure, interconnection between different departments in the Industry Project and Moving Camera course, great network between students, quality and variety of film equipment have improved positively.

Negatives: I wish there were more events to connect students. When I was in the school I was part of the student body and we organised many cultural and social events. Now there aren't many, however the career masterclasses have increased and improved so I am very happy about that.

City Life

London is an amazing city that circles around culture. So it is an extraordinary place with loads of opportunities for film, tv, theatre and media industries.

The school is located in the heart of Ealing Studios, one of the eldest studios in London that still operates as a film studio to the present day, so it is common to see actors and producers walking next to the school.

Ealing is a safe, calm residential area, with loads of restaurants and bars. It is not too quiet but also not too hectic like central London, so it is an amazing place to live. Even after I left Met, I still live in Ealing.

Job Prospects

I am Sara and I studied the MA Directing, MAF06, at Met Film School London. I think the school educated the students with all the important tools to face the film, TV and new media industries. I had the opportunity to work with people from different departments (cinematography, production, screenwriting) and have a feel of what the industry demanded while I was studying. The school also gives opportunities to work in companies and masterclasses to engage with Oscar nominated and great professionals currently in the industry. Finally the school provided a networking platform and contacts that I will carry for the rest of my life.
I am still in touch with the school, the students and professors. We are like a family, so I am glad that I have studied at Met.

Student Support

The support is good. Some teachers they accompany your progress and they are always there to help you. I am still in contact with some of them.
