Student success

Nick Petrouis one such student commented, “I really enjoyed my time studying at BMC and after I completed the Advanced Film making course I decided to come back. I did actually go to another university but really didn’t like it and couldn’t wait to get back to BMC.” “I am really interested in sound on screen. I feel that a lot of people place so much importance on visual effects, when really the sound-scapes and musical score can be just as important in a film or video. Try watching a horror film without sound – it’s not even scary!”

“I think the tutors are incredible, their knowledge and the way they teach is unique and really works for me, they are supportive and encouraging and I reckon I’ll be able to forge a really successful future for myself thanks to everything they’ve taught me so far.”

Nick is has recently completed his BSc at BMC and is one of three that won places with the Media business incubator unit set up to help students into employment.
