“I really enjoyed my time at the Met Film School; it was brilliant to meet like-minded people and to really be thrown into the film environment” Emily Elgar



“I’m happy with the course because I learnt lots about how to make a documentary, taking care of all details, like background sound, how to interview people and finding the narrative” Irene Blanquez Ballester



“The course met my expectations and then some! It offered a very hands-on approach and it was good to only have eight weeks to do everything, as we had to work under pressure, as we will do in the industry” Birta Bjargardottir



“The course exceeded my expectations. My only great sorrow was that it was not longer” Lucien Lawrence


 

“A great learning curve and really satisfying to walk away with a short documentary. I’ve never learned as much in as little time” Agusta Alafsdottir
