I have enjoyed being able to study something I’m passionate about and having that sense of independence.

Did you undertake any work experience throughout your studies?
Participating in the big shoot alongside Petroc was an experience I’m grateful for as I got a deeper understanding of sound/sound engineering and seeing the behind the scenes of everything. It has helped me to know that I definitely want to work within the film industry.
