First Light Alumni

First Light Alumni

First Light is now in its 11th year and some of our young movie-makers are now studying film and media productions at university and colleges, and some are forging careers within the industry.

We are so proud of their achievements and have caught up with a few ex-First Light filmmakers to hear their stories and find out what they’ve been doing.

Alex has written and directed a feature We Are Poets which is picking up awards across the world. Charlie has worked on films such as Tamara Drewe, Harry Potter and Never Let Me Go as well as television productions such as Dr Who and Gavin and Stacey.

If you are an ex-First Light filmmaker who has gone on to study media or is working within the industry then please contact us via and let us know what you’re up to.
