Student Films – a Lottery, or not…?

Student Films – a Lottery, or not…?

Have you ever acted in a student film? My experience of student films range from a completely clueless crew to being on a par with a professional film set. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to work with a bunch of students who were dedicated and, in the main, very organised. I was also lucky in that the actor who was playing my husband was a great chap whom I hit it off with immediately. We had great fun throughout the rehearsal and filming period and it made the whole experience even more rewarding. There are those who turn their noses up at working on student films and do not believe that this type of acting work is worthy of a credit. I do not subscribe to this point of view because after all, these students are the future of the industry and I believe that by helping them develop their talents, I am making a worthwhile contribution to the industry as well as continuing to grow as an actress.
