Budding filmmakers from King’s Ely Sixth Form have been given the opportunity to study at the prestigious Met Film School, in London.

Richard Taylor and Max Openshaw have secured conditional offers after both achieved an A grade in their AS level film studies. The pair are now working on their A level film projects.

Both students are also prolific film-makers with their own film websites.

The Met Film School provides students with a two-year degree course in film making.

Head of King’s Ely Senior, Alex McGrath said: “Max and Richard have produced a creative and exciting body of work already, and are passionate about photography and film.

“We are all delighted that their enthusiasm and passion have been recognised in this way, and wish them well as they work towards achieving top grades, and going on to greater heights in the film industry. We will watch their careers with interest.”
