What Our Students Say About Us

  • Was the start of a career I’ve loved every second of, now working at Disney, a dream.

    Libby Montague-Brown, Production Account Manager at The Walt Disney Company

    I loved South Seas so much, and the bonds I made last year were so unlike anything I had ever experienced.

    Emma Wilson-Hill, Assistant Editor of Housebound

    South Seas wasn’t only a fantastic year of learning and experimenting (it was) but, perhaps more importantly, it was the birthplace of some rock solid friendships and working relationships that have now lasted more than a decade.

    Alastair Tye Samson, Producer of Jake

  • Loved every second spent here. Learnt so much not only as a film student but as an individual. Life changing for sure!

    Jolyn Iro, Media Operator at SkyTV

    In two words: Professionalism and support. Thanks South Seas and all the staff!

    Alessandro Casella, Producer & Director at 7 Besouros Produções

    The support has been over and beyond any other schooling experience I have had. Best decision I made!

    Logan Judd, Director/Videographer at Powered On Videography
