"My college tutors were undoubtedly the biggest influence in getting me to where I am today"

Former student, Michael Bailey, shares how his City College Norwich journey allowed him to follow his filmmaking ambitions.

Creative Media

Michael's tutors helped guide him into filmmaking

I joined City College Norwich to study Creative Media in 2015 because I was attracted to the course content.

I had a great experience at college. I gained a wealth of knowledge in terms of advertising and promotional material. My course allowed me to develop my confidence in using technical equipment such as DSLRs and audio equipment.

The filmmaking route

My college tutors were undoubtedly the biggest influence in getting me to where I am today. I was unsure of the route I wanted to take in my life, and I am extremely glad they encouraged me in the direction I was leaning towards – filmmaking.

Next steps

Michael is now studying filmmaking at UWE

Since leaving college, I have been studying filmmaking at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol. When I graduate this year, I hope to go into the role of Camera Trainee.

In the long term, I would like to work on documentary films.

The Beginning

If I had to sum up my City College Norwich journey in one phrase, it would be ‘The Beginning’
