Meet the Graduates 2017 | Vox Pop on Job-hunting

Thanks to our alumni who shared their experiences of the working world with Lincoln School of Film & Media’s students at our networking event Meet the Graduates (8th Nov). Head of LSFM Professor Steven Peacock said: There was a real buzz about the place. It was fantastic to see so many of our past and present students coming together to share news of such wide-ranging professional achievement.

On this vox pop our graduates give their job-hunting tips.

Thank you to LSFM’s New Media Lincs crew for this vox pop – on the shoot were James Foster (Class of 2017) & student Jake Hatton and the post production editor was student Jack Jolly.  Continue reading

Dave Clancy, Class of 2007 | My Career Update

DaveClancy-2007GradI can’t believe over four years have passed since my last update. As ever, loads has happened since then! Recently, I have returned to freelance life, after spending over five and a half years working at Linney Create, a rapidly expanding film production and digital agency based in Mansfield.

My time there was a real rollercoaster, working with a dedicated team of camera operators, producers, editors and writers to create around 400-plus films a year for clients ranging from Royal Mail to Triumph motorbikes. I was lucky enough to travel the world and work on some fantastic projects whilst at Linney, and really developed my own technical, creative and managerial skills. During my time at Linney I worked as a camera operator, editor, producer and also led the team of up to four in-house camera operators – a real juggling act! I also completed the required training and assessments to be granted permissions from the CAA to operate drones commercially – it was very exciting to be at the cutting edge of this new technology. My latest showreel demonstrates the variety of films I worked on during this time.

Lewis Coates, Class of 2014 | Ch4 Random Acts: When Voices Unite

Random_Acts_logo_RGBHi all – hope you had a great summer! I regularly enjoy reading what fellow Lincoln grads are up to in the media world, so thought I’d discuss my most recent project. In February I was commissioned to write and direct a short film about social media for Channel 4’s ‘Random Acts’. When Voices Unite (2017) has been broadcast by them on their online platforms it has recently been shortlisted for an award at Danny Boyle’s Shuffle Film Festival in London and Cinemagic in Belfast!

Since graduating, I’ve been working for a creative video production agency in Lincoln, filming and editing adverts and web videos for clients such as Mercedes-Benz, smart and Volkswagen. After 2 and a bit years, I’m now Lead Video Production Continue reading

Dani Moseley, Class of 2007 | Multimedia Career update

Actors HeadshotsDani Moseley’s creative career has clocked up ten years from acting (film & TV) to award winning script writing, as well as modelling and facilitating workshops, after graduating in media production. She’s one of our inspirational industry mentors and also, er, our annual blogger! It’s nearly been a year already since I last posted in … Meet the Graduates was great. Lovely meeting some of you and my mentee, who I have been in contact with all year and glad to hear she’s applying for as many things as she sees fit regardless of the outcome, as you just never know.

LA and New York were amazing. Got management out there before I even landed, which was cool. It was just nice to be there, by myself, seeing how life could be. It was the first time in a long while that I got to solely focus on my acting and it was heavenly. Did a few auditions, signed up to a few casting sites out there, caught up with my agent who I met early that year and we’re still very much in-tune with each other which is great. Continue reading

Dan Davison, LSFM Student | Chris Packham’s BioBlitz Video

Bioblitz-crew_Oct2016The pitch for a video was originally put up on the LSFM Academy Facebook page, where information was being given out about Chris Packham coming to do the University of Lincoln’s first-ever BioBlitz eventI have notifications turned on for the LSFM page (coincidentally this is the most consistent tip I’d pass on to other students), some things may not apply but occasionally a job pops up and I’m usually one of the first to see it. BioBlitz is the term used to describe an area-wide survey of the life during a set time period. In this case it was a full day on 3rd October 2016 at Brayford Pool campus. We had a meeting with various staff at the School of Life Sciences – organisers of the event – and tutors from Lincoln School of Film & Media (LSFM). Here’s a BioBlitz short film with Visiting Professor, at the School of Life Sciences & LSFM, and naturalist presenter Chris Packham captured by a LSFM crew.

I am in my final year (Level 3 Media Production) at LSFM   Continue reading
