"A full-on geekgasm for connoisseurs of movie production" 🎥🎬✂❤️ - Peter Bradshaw - The Guardian

Our Film and TV courses not only provide students invaluable opportunities to work on real sets and stages, you might just bump into Hollywood legends along the way!🎬🤩

Our very own Howard Berry, Programme Leader for the Post-Graduate Film Production programme, worked alongside legendary Hollywood film and sound editor Walter Murch, to create 'Moviola' - a fascinating documentary about film editing in the pre-digital age. ⬅📟

Walter Murch, who has edited among other movies Apocalypse Now, The Godfather and The English Patient, was the writer of the documentary, whilst Howard Berry directed. 🤩🎬

Project info:

"Journeying through places and poems, we explore perceptions and insights that inspire thought-provoking poetry and captivating architecture. Today’s youth, the future guardians of our world, seem to be losing touch with humanity amidst societal pressures and concerns for their own futures. It’s crucial to bridge this gap by connecting with the wisdom of older generations who have navigated life’s experiences. This project focuses on fostering this intergenerational exchange through interactive spaces, where both young and old can learn from each other, strengthening bonds and understanding for a brighter future."
