Joining Forces With Met Film School

Joining Forces With Met Film School

For the second year running, PALA has been fortunate to team up with the Met Film School on an incredible project to showcase our brand.

Since 2003, The Met Film School has been one of the country’s leading institutes for both under and post-graduate students, and its production company, MetFilm Production, has achieved critical and commercial success worldwide.

Students at the school are able to collaborate with real brands as part of their studies. PALA worked with a group of the school’s MBA students, led by producer in training Claudia Kaleta, to develop a brand video for us.

We met with the team and agreed on a brief for the project, titled ‘See The World’. The goal for the short film was “to animate the spirit of the brand – of creativity and adventure, of energy and style. To notice and to be thrilled by our surroundings, and to be hungry for more.”

Three weeks later, they presented us with a storyboard and notes on their creative direction. After a little refinement, the team was ready to begin filming – and all PALA needed to do was to supply the sunglasses!

The end result can be seen above. We hope you agree that it’s an amazing piece of work, one which we think captures the ethos of the PALA brand brilliantly.

For us, this represents the beginning of the PALA journey – a Brighton based eyewear brand that started as an idea on a piece of paper, but with grand ambitions – not only to create a stylish, desirable product, but to give back in a tangible and meaningful way.

The Met Film School partnership has been fantastic and we’re grateful to Claudia and the team for all their hard work. Thanks also to Chris Maples, CEO of Met Film School and Steve Pinhay, Head of Screen Enterprise, who have made this collaboration so easy – long may it continue.

Felicia is our ‘camera ninja’ when it comes to photography for the Pala website. Hailing from Sweden, but now based close to the Pala Brighton HQ. When she’s not exercising her skills of mind control to make models relax on shoots you’ll find her in a cafe enjoying a good cup of coffee, or at home baking cinnamon buns.



Emma is our marketing guru. When Emma isn’t planning, strategizing and creating content, she can be found travelling the world exploring its wonders, or in more recent times – headphones on with a paintbrush in her hand creating an abstract masterpiece!



Mary is the team leader of the Care4basket project in Bolgatanga, Ghana. When Mary is not organising and supporting the work across the communities, you will find her sowing sweet potatoes, ground nut, millet and looking after the animals on the farm.



Izzy is our Sales and Comms mastermind. When Izzy isn’t throwing herself down a mountain on a snowboard, she can normally be found rummaging through vintage shops or pounding the fields with her beloved puppy, Mac. She once mislaid a finger on a night out (eek!) – girl knows how to party!

Justin is our ‘Film Alchemist’. When he’s not laying on the floor looking for the next shot he’s either exploring the finest bourbons and listening to obscure country music tracks from the 50s and 60s. Normally found planning his next trip abroad or fuelling the pineapple on pizza debate. Just so you know he’s firmly in the Hawaiian camp!
