Kieron says: “I will always consider myself a student of film, always learning new things and then sharing what I learn with the students who love film as much as I do.
“Your success in film is entirely down to your own hard work and commitment and our experienced staff will provide you with all the support and knowledge necessary to help you make the most out of your time here. Students are constantly making films and therefore constantly learning from mistakes. If you work hard on this course and utilise the support and resources available to you, there is no reason why you could not find success in the film and television industries as so many of our graduates already have.”
Kieron still writes and develops scripts independently and in collaboration with other writers. He continues to develop his own film projects whilst also assisting new filmmakers to produce their films. With his strong industry contacts, Kieron continues to provide students with opportunities on major Hollywood projects and major television productions.
