Two King’s Ely Sixth Formers have been given the opportunity to study at the prestigious Met Film School in London.

Richard Taylor and Max Openshaw (pictured) have secured conditional offers after both achieved an ‘A’ grade in their AS level Film Studies; now they are working on their A2 film projects. Both students are also prolific film-makers with their own film websites. Having been made finalists in national film competitions, Richard and Max are determined to see their work on the big screen in the not too distant future.

The Met Film School offers one of the most advanced and dynamic film courses in the country with many ex-students going on to leading roles in television and film companies. The Met will provide these two Sixth Formers with an intensive two year degree course in film making and a valuable step forward towards their ambitions.

Head of King’s Ely Senior, Alex McGrath, commented, “Max and Richard have produced a creative and exciting body of work already, and are passionate about photography and film. It is a mark of the excellent instruction they have received at King’s Ely from their teachers, and of course their own talent and hard work, that they have each been offered these sought after places on the course at Met. We are all delighted that their enthusiasm and passion have been recognised in this way, and wish them well as they work towards achieving top grades, and going on to greater heights in the film industry. We will watch their careers with interest”.
