                  Higher Education began when two students at a New England boarding school, both committed to regular high school classes and extracurriculars, set an ambitions goal for themselves: by the end of their senior year they would write, direct, act in, and produce a feature length film. The production of the film would be shot at their own prep school; the plot of the film would center on life at boarding school; the film would be made by boarding school students. The idea and script came next: Higher Education was born. With a small crew and student cast assembled, director Oliver Salk and writer Tommy Robertshaw immediately began production in the fall semester of 2012. The crew was able to rent professional equipment thanks to the generosity of countless individuals who contributed a total of more than $16,000 to the film's Kickstarter. Higher Education became more than just an afterschool project; it completely encompassed the lives of all involved. If members of the cast and crew weren’t in school studying or at sports, they were shooting in dorm rooms, gathering props, or holding discussions in Salk's dorm room/editing suite/production office. On behalf of the entire cast and crew of Higher Education, we hope that you enjoy the film.

                    A film by Joanna Callaghan and Martin McQuillan In the autumn of 2010 the Browne Report on sustainable finance in Higher Education was published. Since then universities, students and British political life have been in a state of convulsion. This film tells the story of how under the Coalition government Britain is moving from a system of mass participation in tertiary education to the most expensive tuition fees regime in the OECD and what this means for universities and the nation. Through a series of interviews with significant voices in the Higher Education sector (including Browne panel members), academics, and prospective students, the film pieces together the origins of Browne, its political fallout, and its long-term consequences.
