Hayley graduated with a BA (Hons) Film Production from UCA Farnham in 2016 followed by an MA in Filmmaking in 2017.
Alongside her studies she completed a range of work experience, working as a runner and videographer.
After working on a range of high profile projects including ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’, she was signed to a US directing / writing management team in LA
Studying for a masters at UCA was one of the smartest decisions I ever made as it taught me not just how to be a crew member, but how to become an all-round filmmaker. My MA film ‘Denouement’ is one of the reasons I’ve just been signed to my new role in LA.
Entrepreneur Kongphat, who is studying BA (Hons) Architecture at UCA Canterbury, attended COP28 to represent his tech start-up Phytavaren Technology as its inventor and chief technology officer.
He has created an Interlocking Semi-Calcite Brick, which won the 2023 This is Cool Challenge, run by Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL).
Its clever design, including an interlocking feature, also means the assembly process is easier, quicker and uses less plaster in its construction.
My goal is to bridge the gap between innovative design and sustainable technology, potentially leading or contributing to projects that redefine the way we approach construction and environmental sustainability
Craig Luck Craig graduated from UCA in 2010 with a BA (Hons) in Film Production.
When he wrote the initial story while a studying at UCA, intending for it to be a short film
“I wrote FINCH with no-one in mind, certainly not Tom Hanks... There's a good reason why everyone loves Tom Hanks, and it's because he's genuine and extremely talented at what he does. His decision to say ‘Yes’ to us changed my life more than he'll ever know.”
It was a strange, full-circle moment when the film launched on Apple TV+
Craig worked in an Apple Store after graduating, while also trying to get the short film version of FINCH (then known as BIOS) made.
Seeing this small project grow into what it is today is surreal. I find it increasingly difficult to say ‘a dream come true’ because the reality is, it was beyond a dream at the time!
With FINCH now streaming, Craig is working on new projects, including a film called Interloper, which is still in development.
