Credits rolling for Havering College students

The credits are starting to roll in for four Havering College students determined to break in to the film industry.

Students from the HNC Media Production course at Havering College of Further and Higher Education have been grabbing every opportunity to act as runners, bit part actors and assistant directors.

Classmates Louis Taylor, from Harold Hill, and Daniel Attrill, from Romford, have worked on videos with ex-EastEnders actor James Alexandrou aka Martin Fowler.

Louis, 19, said: “It was fantastic experience as one of the videos with James was being used to pitch an idea for a series to the BBC.”

He has also appeared in two English comedy films.

“I love filmmaking and the opportunities I have through the Media Production course at Havering College, where we have with all the latest cameras and editing software, are fantastic,” he added.

Daniel, 20, whose ambition is to be a film editor and writer, has been a film crew member on music videos for Amy Winehouse’s goddaughter Dionne Bromfield.
