MA Filmmaking student, Harvey Gardner said: “I’d heard great things from some of the contacts I have in film industry about the filmmaking course at UWS, and how they’d heard about graduates doing well transitioning quickly into work in the industry. My main aspiration for years had been to make movies, and the course seemed to be a great starting point for that journey.
“The best thing about studying at UWS has been the opportunity to make films, plain and simple. The equipment and teaching the University provides has helped me build a style and start a career.
“My best memory so far of studying at UWS is probably all the experiences on set making films, as well as meeting great friends and making lifelong working relationships with talented people.
“Having been on this course has already helped me dramatically in my career, and I haven’t even finished the course yet! My short fiction film, SHED has played at the Glasgow Short film festival, as well as many others, and is now playing on the STV player. Much of the style that I tried to create in the film was inspired by things I watched within the course, as well as recommendations from lecturers. And key collaborations with people from my course and the broadcast course helped me make the film I wanted to make.
