Our students come from a diverse range of backgrounds and have a variety of reasons for coming to study at Morley.

Kat Reichel

When Stop Motion Animation tutor Lucy Orr saw what her student Kat Reichel accomplished on her Stop Motion Animation course at Morley College she was bowled over! So much so that we asked Kat if she could talk about her experience of making her beautiful and moving film ‘J’, which introduces us to ‘a lonely old man who’s life takes an unexpected turn when he receives a letter not meant for him’
