New York Film Academy Course


Seeta Patel travelled to New York to attend an 8-week film and digital course at the NY Film Academy.
“Though the course approached film-making from a very western/Hollywood perspective, I found it valuable to understand the fundamental principles of visual storytelling and feel that I can apply this to my dance and experimental film work. The tutors were all practising professionals and this really gave a very current and relevant approach to the ideas and methods they were teaching us, as well as a depth from their experience. Since completing the course I have already had two work opportunities that have included directing, filming and editing, both for dance and non-dance short films.”
“I would highly recommend this course to those starting out within the medium of film. It is a costly program and living in New York has its challenges, but it was very much worth the commitment and effort, and I have left there feeling I have gained a lot of skills. Taking time away from your regular work can seem daunting, but I do feel it is important and can help with future decisions.”

R & D Residency in Marseille

Lucille Teppa travelled to Marseille, France, to undertake a two-week residency with free studio space to research movement material for innovative choreography at Ballet National de Marseille.


“In July 2014, I was invited to research a new choreographic work -­‐ Species of Spaces -­‐ which I initiated. The piece involves Eleven Farrer House’s four dance artists. Species of Spaces is a choreographic project which has been gestating in my head for a long time.”
“Overall these two weeks of work turned out to be a major experience which enhanced my personal, professional and artistic development, while strengthening Eleven Farrer House as a creative group of early career dance artists.”
