  • Media Studies UCL Trip

    Last Thursday, media students visited UCL, where students showed us the tips and tricks behind filming documentaries. Our first stop was Picturehouse Central in Piccadilly where we watched four short documentaries by former UCL media students, which had also been selected to screen at the film festival. This was very helpful as we were given an insight into the art of capturing certain scenes in people's lives with only a limited amount of time. We left and headed to UCL, where we all took part in numerous workshops, learning in a hands-on way how to use a camera and the importance of angles to convey a message to viewers. I found this intriguing as, before this, I thought not much skill went into film making. At the end of the day we were taken around on a tour of the amazing campus by friendly students. We were told scenes from Inception were filmed in the library, Batman outside the Medical School and Coldplay had first met on site - not bad! Momena Begum
