Darius studies MA Film Production, and tells us more about the course and his work.
“I’m from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I chose to come to AUB as there weren’t many film schools back in Malaysia. I really wanted to pursue Cinematography, and the MA Film Production specialises in that. I was looking for courses that provided that specific pathway.
“It’s a very collaborative university, which is really interesting. Back in January I worked on a Hindi-English short film. The MA course is very diverse and international, which is nice.
“I’ve always wanted to see how the film industry works, and I get to experience this life. Back home, I was doing some freelance work and assisting. I also do some Fashion Photography on the side, which is nice. It’s nice to see the collaboration across the university.
“I’ve chosen to do the cinematography for two short films with two different directors. I’m working on a short film called Narcissist Revisited, and in September I’m working on a Bollywood drama. We’ll be shooting in India and the UK.
“I get to choose who I work with and who I’m comfortable working with. The directors approached me and working with them has been a good experience.
“Back home, I didn’t have this kind of experience and campus life. We don’t really have any art schools, so I’d recommend it.”
