Actor

This if my first official film credit and experience in a professional film setting, however I have done freelance acting on youtube for over a year now recreating Hollywood's most iconic film/Tv roles. I want to work in film because I believe the lack of diversity within the industry needs to desperately change. It makes no sense that we are classed as the minority in a business that is supposed to represent the real world on our TV screens, yet depicts only a minority of it; the true irony is that we are the global majority. I want to be part of representing an authentic portrayal of the world on our TV screens. I am from West London.

Faye Glynn

Faye Glynn

Actor

I’m Bristol-based, I have years of experience with theatre acting and devising, alongside a few acting-for-camera courses. I find the nature of acting for camera to be much more natural than theatre, and I the buzz I get from working with other actors on screen is the most important reason in choosing a film career. I have a keen interest in physical theatre, and use this approach with all of my
roles - I think physicality is the key to finding the character inside yourself.

I have a true passion for writing and have had some Theatre scripts short listed for performances, and there is nothing more beautiful, as a writer, than to see your work come to life. I am originally from Albania but I was raised in London and have been here for twenty years now.

Tomas Spacil

Tomas Spacil

DOP

My name is Tomas Spacil and I am an international student studying Film, Radio and Television Production. Beside studying at University, I work as a photographer, a cinematographer and a production runner. One of the biggest achievements during my studies was working as a DOP on a short 90-second-long award winning film for best cinematic look. I am keen on capturing the right moment and expressing emotions through cinematography. Working as a photographer helped me to recognise what the image or visual outcome should deliver to the audience in order to develop a relationship between person in the frame and the spectator.

Nicole Hines

Nicole Hines

Crew

Raised in West London to African and Caribbean parents, I found myself wanting to work in film whilst in a mental institute.

I saw the unity and impact a film of any genre could have on people - and wanted to be part of this impact, leading me to start a YouTube channel to create content and edit videos.

After studying Film for A Levels, I entered the SetReady 2021 programme as a starting point to gain experience practically in film. In my group I work within Sound Design and Editing as well as Key Grip.

Francesca Gatt

Francesca Gatt

Crew

I've been learning photography and film studies at college which gave be the passion to move towards film. I don't have any experience with film, as I've come from Malta which is a small island that doesn't have these kind of opportunities that NYFA has given me. I want to work with film because I want to be a part of the entertainment and social values that film creates and I would like to do that by being a part Cinematography element.

Red Rose

Red Rose

Assistant Director

Writing & Directing is my bread butter and have created two shorts for uni, but I've helped mates out on their student films in roles such as AD, Script Supervisor and Producer. I want to work in film because I have something to say. Slotting myself into a male dominated genre in an already male dominated industry is a challenge I find exciting. I am going to define a space for queer people in film who want to make good stuff. Being a Scouser from a Scottish background meant that I had to be resourceful with my filmmaking. My two films have been created entirely from my family and friends around me. Borrowing, stealing and loaning are things that I feel have only helped show my voice in film.
