Marc Farrell

BA (Hons) Digital Film Production and Screenwriting
“Looking back, I only have fond memories of Chichester. The course is fundamental to gaining experience within the industry, and as such I had the pleasure of working for the BBC. Upon leaving the University, my knowledge was more than enough to set up my own media company, with a priority in corporate and wedding videos. I owe a great deal to the staff of the Media department for teaching techniques, inspiring ideas and above all believing in me.”
