In 2003, the first 8-weeks course takes place in Clapham, London. Two years later, the location is moved to Ealing Studios, home to the birth of British cinema, and the first uncredited one-year course begins. In 2012 MetFilm opens a school in Berlin.

It has been very practical
I had a good study experience as I learn the fundamental base of the job I want to learn but the support from the school in the projects was not sufficient. I didn't learn enough to consider myself as a Master Degree Graduate in cinematography which is not to blame on my teachers but on the organisation of the school.
