What is the experience of university students, the real experience? The U, Really Film Project is an ongoing initiative of making short, documentary style films, films by students, about the real and messy and funny lives of their fellow students. We do this because there’s a gap to be filled. Students’ perceptions about university life are formed, in part, by a narrow band of media representations and marketing material that paint an incomplete picture. We hope that these films will add to the the story and will, not only entertain and inform, but help students experience their own meandering, and messy, and funny paths in education as normal and ok.
The following include some of the works embarked on so far in the U, Really series.
