Awesome time spent learning, practicing and deciding exactly what line of work I wanted in post production

Rafael Bettega

Name: Rafael Bettega 

Course: BA (Hons) Editing and Post Production 

Year of Graduation: 2014

Ravensbourne appealed to me because of the use of high end technology and the infrastructure of having professional tutors who are also engaged in the industry.

Ravensbourne helped me to gain the connections and network to further my professional career. One particular highlight for me was the Industry Day event, where we had the opportunity to meet professionals and learn from their experience and look at work opportunities before leaving university.

I felt the Editing and Post Production course was well matched to my chosen career path.

Before leaving university I was offered a position in the film industry as an assistant editor, joining Asif Kapadia and the team who produced a documentary about the Brazillian F1 racing driver Senna and Amy (Amy Winehouse) 

I was very proud to be part of a team who worked on the award winning film Amy which won an Oscar in 2016 in the documentary category. I’m currently waiting to resume work with the Amy crew on our new production a documentary about the infamous Argentinian soccer player Maradona.

My advice to prospective students would be to go get yourself seen and meet as many people as possible. As a student you have the excuse to do so, and once you leave university you will need to contact the people you met to find a job and this will place you many steps ahead of any unknown face.
