I am a postgraduate student at the University of Reading, currently studying for my MRes degree in Film Studies. Through my academic study, I encourage myself to think creatively and create films not only as practical but also theoretical exploration. To me film is an art form. It is most definitely a way of telling stories, but it is also about telling those stories in a different way that is different from literature, painting or photography. The creative process of combining sound and moving image is the closest we can get to representing reality as we see it, to tell real stories about real people.
