Industry Advisory Board

The school's advisory board consists of a group of industry professionals with years of experience. It provides advice to the school's management with regards to new development and trends in the film industry. This enables the school to develop an up-to-date curriculum, which provides our students with the necessary skills to work in a constantly-changing industry.  Members of our advisory board include:

  • Colin Burrows - A producer who brings a wide range of experience and is best known for his work on Skyfall (2012), About Time (2013) and Blitz (2011). 
  • Nino Lietner - Austria-based cinematographer and ambassador for G-Technology.  A prominent blogger and camera specialist, who advises generally on the latest cameras and workflow.
  • Philip Ilson - Director of the London Short Film Festival and programmer of short films for the BFI London Film Festival.  Philip advises the school on the latest trends in short filmmaking, festivals and distribution.
  • Zeitgeist Films - A very successful production company with British and international film productions.  Their latest feature, Orthodox, has  been on UK theatrical release.

The school focuses on training students in fiction-based filmmaking, but we also recognise the need for our students to engage with social, cultural, economic and political issues.  We are very proud of our connection with the Bertha Foundation, which leads the way in supporting new voices in filmmaking through it's philanthropic work.
