Work Experience Student – Maria Serban



I’m Maria and I’m a 16 years old media student.


Favourite film and why:

One of my favourite movie is Life of Pi. The reason why I Iike this movie is the storyline and the visual effects.


What am I doing with Cut Films:

I have joined Cut Films for my 2 weeks work experience. I enjoyed my first day and had a great time helping out with cameras and learning new things. For example, I’ve learned a lot of new stuff about cigarettes and the damages that smoking causes to your organs. Did you know that about 100,000 people die every year because they smoke or by just staying around smokers? Or what a cigarette contains in order to destroy your lungs.


Most interesting smoking fact:

A cigarette contains more than 4,000 chemicals and 43 of them cause cancer. The chemicals that affect your lungs the most from a cigarette are tar, carbon monoxide, arsenic etc.

So far I’ve learned a lot of new stuff and during this 2 weeks I plan on learning more about cigarettes and the impact that Cut Films has on their audience.
