At University of Salford, Film Production students are taught by seasoned professional filmmakers. It’s a practical course, with an enviable storeroom of top-quality equipment allowing the students to achieve high production values. There’s always a keen eye on entering the business, of preparing the students for film work. Paramount for this preparation are the student films themselves, where we strive for festival quality. And here they are, for your consideration. By Jeremiah Quinn (Film Production Lecturer and award-winning film maker).
