George-Horne_LonelyLeap Our 2010 graduate George Horne works as a Creative at LONELYLEAP - a film company with production teams in London and New York.  George was the Director and Creative Lead on a film called We Engineer (2014).  It was made for the Science Museum for its Engineer Your Future exhibition, which is to encourage young people into engineering and look at relevant careers in this field.

George said: “To be honest the Science Museum has always been one of my favourite places to visit in London, ever since I was a child.
