Poldark Director Will McGregor visits Media and Film Studies Students

Former student Will Mcgregor came into Fakenham Academy and Fakenham College on Friday 12th November to talk to Film and Media Studies students about his progression from being at Fakenham High School to becoming a director of film and cinema. 

Will showed us some of his early projects, whilst studying at college and university, short films with little or no dialogue, to projects for TV, including Capital FM TV commercials, directing the popular and successful drama Poldark on the BBC.

The students listened well to Will and how he had managed to make a career out of film making, something he did not choose at GCSE. 

Thanks to Will for coming in and speaking to the students.
