Claire said the below about her studies at Solent:
"I was lucky enough to be able to go and study at Solent University after graduating from Oakfields College. During my time at Solent, I met some great people and saw some amazing things. I had the opportunity to have my work published in a student-run film magazine as well as Film Matters Journal,based in the US.
As part of the course, I produced short films, TV studio productions and corporate videos. The University also brings in industry professionals like Sir Alan Parker - director of the original ‘Fame’, it is awesome to be able to get advice from such talented people. As my final major project, I produced a short film with three friends. We were tutored by a director-writer who at the time had his latest film circulating in cinemas around the UK. Our film was screened at the Harbour Lights Picturehouse in Southampton.
I would definitely recommend Solent to other students who have the opportunity to do so as it broadened my horizons and opened up opportunities I never thought possible."
