Senior Lecturer Marcella Forster initiated our School’s International Buddy Scheme (picked by the University of Lincoln Student Engagement Innovation Fund 2014) and currently she is recruiting for another batch of LSFM Student Mentors (to start in September 2015). Marcella said: First and second years from all programmes in LSFM (international students are particularly welcome) can apply. The aim is to provide peer support to our international students during their first year in LSFM. You will be trained in mentoring and cross-cultural awareness. This qualifies for the Lincoln Award. Email email@example.com for details and an application form. Applications MUST be returned to me by 23rd March.
Marcella took part with our former students in 2014: Luke Winter, Thomas McKie, Ashley Wilks and Alexander Whitcombe (pictured on the plane last summer). These graduates (RTS award winning filmmakers of Facebook Anonymous) will be talking about their Looking China experiences TODAY, Wednesday 18th March, from 4pm to 5pm in Room MC2201 in the MHT Building.
For Looking China 2014 all participants produced a 10-minute film. Luke on his return from the 16-day filmmaking project in Dalian said: “Making a film in a foreign country alongside my friends and colleagues has been one of the best experiences of my life. The whole experience has been completely eye-opening. This was Ashley’s film about Dalian workers.
Ashley, Luke and Thomas run their own commercial film production company called Wallbreaker Productions and you can see the services they provide here. Alexander Whitcombe was a co-founder/director at Wallbreaker and is based in London working as a freelance motion graphic designer/video editor/camera operator.
