I had enrolled at another university for another course, but realised it wasn't for me. The University of Suffolk handled everything smoothly and within a week I was enrolled with them. I knew I wanted to study Film and the course covered a variety of areas.

The most appealing part to me was that it combined practical and theory. I enjoyed sound, film history and screenwriting the most. I had underestimated the importance of sound within film, and the knowledge of film history has helped me shape my own films through influence and inspiration. I think screenwriting should be a module every film student learns it is essential.

Since graduating I have worked on Guy Ritchie’s Man From U.N.C.L.E (2015), Edge of Tomorrow (2014) starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, Far From the Madding Crowd (2015) starring Carey Mulligan, and I have recently been working on Pan ( 2015) starring Hugh Jackman.

I will also shortly be directing a short film that I have written. In the future I hope to be writing and directing feature films.
