The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London has been transformed into a film set this week with students working as part of the cast and crew for Mirror Mirror Productions as they film the next big British urban comedy at the College’s Tottenham Centre.

Over the next five days, students are working as runners and make-up artists, with many more working as extras in various scenes shot throughout the College.

Media student, Ngozi Ikwke, is one of twenty Level 3 Creative Media students who are working as runners gaining the experience and skills they need for a future in the industry. She said: “This has surpassed all my expectations. We are learning so much and they are really taking time out to tell us why and how things work.”

Fellow student, Jame Pierre Yepez, added: “The thing that I’ve noticed most is how we are all working together. Whether you’re a runner or director, everyone chips in and makes it work. It’s a real team effort.”

In addition to runners, five lucky Theatrical Make-Up and Hairdressing students are working as part of make-up and wardrobe gaining experience working with high profile actors and actresses.

Shani Levy-Galloway is one of the students working alongside the experienced make-up artists. She said: “I volunteered as it’s a good opportunity to work on a real set, plus I’m also an actress so it’s good to be in this type of environment.”

As well as having their names on the end credits, students are working with the production team, including writer and star Femi Oyeniran (Kidulthood, Adulthood and Anuvahood), director Darwood Grace (The Limelight, Anuvahood, Cab Hustle) and producer Dean Fisher (The Man inside, Interview with a Hitman and City Rats) who are providing them with invaluable insight into the world of feature films.

Principal and Chief Executive, Paul Head, said: “This is a perfect opportunity for students. As a vocational college, our aim is to make sure students are ready for work and have as much experience as possible, which is why we are delighted to have the crew here providing students with what they need to have a career in the media industry.”

The film ‘It’s a lot’ is set in a London college, so the Tottenham Centre provided the perfect back drop for the comedy.
