Year 11 Film Studies students gained an incredible insight into the movie industry when Lucia Serpini visited the College recently. Lucia has worked on the set of Hollywood’s recent blockbusters including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Justice League. Lucia also shared her experiences of working on the acclaimed superhero movie Wonder Woman. These were not only fascinating to hear but also invaluable to students who are studying the film for their upcoming GCSE exam.

 

Her role on the set of Wonder Woman was Crowd Production Assistant, a demanding job that includes contributing to the smooth running of the set and the organisation of extras. Lucia opened students’ eyes to the making of a $150 million hit, including the different on-set responsibilities from the director’s interaction with the cast to how much extras get paid to cut their hair! She also discussed her career path to date and advised students what they should do if they’re thinking of following in her footsteps.

 

Lucia visited Wyvern after returning from Croatia and the set of the sequel to Mamma Mia and will soon be jetting off to work on another Hollywood smash. Nevertheless, she has offered to return to speak to future Film Studies students so they too can discover what’s involved in bringing the films they love to the big screen.
