Hi I’m Kerisha

I’m an 18 year old student studying Media, Creative Writing and Performing Arts Music at St.Brendan’s Sixth Form College.

I was first introduced to film and media in year 8 when I took part in a competition called ‘Lights,Camera, Parliament’ where students had to make a short film about changing one law. This was when I really got into the concept of filming, editing, photography and sound. It was just great to be apart of producing something that would be seen by other people and that would hopefully have a powerful impact on everyone who saw it.

Studying GCSE and A- Level Media has been nothing but a fantastic and surreal experience where instead of just watching a film or reading an article, you are actually becoming increasingly curious and motivated to know more about its production and purpose.

Being apart of a film production always makes me feel like I’m learning all of the behind the scenes secrets and its absolutely great! I don’t think there is anything I’m more passionate about than Film and Media.
