When Corey Kitchen enrolled at St Vincent College in Gosport, he did so with a dream of joining the likes of Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino in the Hollywood elite.
One year later and that dream is fast becoming a reality after his college-produced short film Knock, Knock was recently screened at a movie theatre in Cumbria.
Following work with the British Film Institute, Corey was asked to submit his film for consideration at an introductory screening before the showing of a major motion picture.
Such was the buzz generated by this that the film will now receive a formal screening at the Creative Alliance Independent Film Fete in London this month. Not only will Corey’s film be screened to a wide selection of film and industry executives, both he and his fellow student collaborators will take to the stage for a question and answer session with the audience.
Head of College Andy Grant said: 'We are very proud of Corey’s achievement. He has developed not only as a film-maker, but also as an inspirational member of the college community.’
Corey, who is studying Media, Film and Photography at the college, attributes his love of film to his teachers at Brune Park School who inspired him to pursue his passion at St Vincent.
Knock Knock is the story of a hitman and was inspired by Pulp Fiction, one of Corey’s favourite films, and stars fellow students Tobias Husmann, Samuel Murphy and Phoebe Wellsted.
The film will be screened as part of St Vincent College’s Open Evening on Wednesday October 23 from 5pm-7.30pm.
The event will provide future students and their families with the opportunity to explore the college, meet students and staff and find out more about the wonderful education opportunities available to them.
There is also the chance for visitors to find out about the fantastic array of adult, higher education and work-based learning courses available to learners over the age of 19. To find out more about St Vincent College, go to www.stvincent.ac.uk
