Mixing with the A-list
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Pembrokeshire College student Josh Veale recently found himself rubbing shoulders with the stars at the BFI London Film Festival in Leicester Square.
Josh, who is studying on the Media Studies course at the College attended a star-studded screening of the film ‘Fury’ with education charity ‘Into Film’ before interviewing leading man Brad Pitt on the red carpet. Josh also managed to chat with other stars of the film including Jon Bernthal, Shia LeBeouf and Michael Pena.
Josh was able to report from this a-list event through the Into Film Talent Development programme, which enables young people with a passion for film to report from film industry events. The programme is supported by the British Film Industry with Lottery funding.
Josh, 17, said: “It’s been really great – it’s not just the fact that there are big stars here, it‘s the fact that I could selectively interview loads of different people whether that’s the producer, the director, the actors and the actresses.
“I’ve definitely got a lot more confidence from being on the Into Film Talent Development Scheme, and I think I’ve found the ability to be able to say what I want to rather than constantly struggling to find words. It’s been a brilliant experience that’s helped me become a better individual.”
