I enjoy going out socially with friends, and am a big fan of film so regularly watching cinema showing. I train at a Muay Thai gym in my spare time to keep fit.
Future aspirations
 In the future, I wish to become a documentary filmmaker, and I really admire the work of Vice magazine, so always think that’s where I’d like to be in a few years. As a massive film buff, I eventually plan to move in to feature film. I have a conditional offer at Ravensbourne College of design and communication, for an intensive two-year course that will help me hone my filmmaking skills.

I have on-going work with Birmingham’s credit union, Citysave, creating several pieces exploring the world of payday lending, a national issue at the moment. Aside from clients, I enjoy working on my own scripts to further develop in to short films, as well as currently in the early stages of some documentary ideas.
What I hope to get out of Malta
I am looking forward to experiencing the new Culture of Malta and seeing some of the beautiful sights I have often heard of, as well as visiting some of the sights that film and series dramas have filmed at previously. I wish to create a great product and form strong, life-long partners from this trip

Name
: Noel Abdilla
Age: 26
Role: Student and Driver in Malta
Interests
I really enjoy going out with friends, play games, watch films and TV series. I spend a lot of time listening to music, any genre really except country. And also I love history and technology.
Future aspirations
Since I already work in the TV industry, in the future I would like to explore more areas in connection with live TV shows like audio, graphic content and maybe even create title sequences. Apart from that in my free time I wish I can spend more energy in developing games.
Previous Work
Currently I work with the PBS in Malta as a freelance graphic operator. Also I’ve been a cameramen with NET TV for 3 years filming studio live programmes and also live events using an OB-unit. On a more computer related area, together with some friends we took part in 2 Game Development Challenges and 1 Global Gam Jam and managed to develop three games in a relatively short time.

What I hope to get out of this experience
I hope to first of all make new connections abroad but also learn new ways of how I can promote any experience I wish to share with other people being small things like TV programme graphics to game development. Also this whole experience of promoting Malta to foreigners will help me rediscover some gems that we sometimes take for granted since we live
here everyday.
