Marketa is in her second year studying BA (Hons) Film at our Cardiff campus.
What influenced you to do this course? And why here?
I always wanted to be around filmmaking, I was just fascinated by 'behind the scene’ videos, to be honest. Even if I am perceiving myself as a shy one, I like to challenge myself (sometimes I regret, but at the end I am glad for finishing my job and very happy).
I was also studying film at high school in Prague so I had a clue what it is going to be about.
I have chosen USW because it interested me the most.
What have been the most valuable aspects (from a career perspective) of the course?
English. Teamwork. And emphasis on practical side of film making as same as a lots of various tasks.
What has been your favourite project?
All of them, I guess. I like always the most recent one. For example now I am making my research for dance studios around Wales and preparing shooting of a documentary piece.
What are your future plans and how will this qualification help you with these?
My future plan is to return back to Czech Republic and find the best job for me there. I hope my qualification will help as much as it even can. Not just by collected document saying I have (hopefully!) a bachelor degree. But by my skills.
