Nicola Liddiard, LSFM | MA Design

Teaching graphic design within BA (Hons) Media Production here at the University of Lincoln has given me the perfect opportunity to study for an MA in Design. It has taken me a long time, but, sadly, now the end is nearly in sight. I completed my Major Practical Project last summer and am now working on the final piece, my Negotiated Written Study.

My Major Practical project was exhibited in the recent Festival of Creativity degree shows, and with that over I am now hoping to introduce my work to a wider audience of colleagues. You can see the poster I designed as part of the show here.

Jake Dungworth, LSFM Student | Industry Mentoring Review

LSFM 3rd Year Undergraduate

I applied for LSFM Industry Mentoring as I thought it would give me an insight into post-university life and help me understand how to progress into a media career.  I was paired with Ben Atkinson-Foster, the Digital Education Developer for the College of Arts and a former media student at the University of Lincoln, who shared his experiences in industry as well as his interests in Radio; of which he produces and presents a specialist music podcast.

I am an avid music fan and DJ with aspirations to work in the events industry as well as on Radio and so Ben was a very ideal person to have been mentored by. Continue reading

LSFM | 10 Regional RTS Midlands Student Award Nominations

Lincoln School of Film & Media is delighted that our undergraduates’ work have been nominated for 10 Royal Television Society (RTS) Midlands Student Awards 2019. Joint Media Production Programme Leader is Chris Hainstock: This year LSFM have received a record number of nominations for Regional RTS Student Film Awards this year, and we’re proud of the work the students have put in and the films themselves. We have three nominations for animation as well as others for drama and factual. In addition three craft nominations for Camera, Production Design and Editing. It is particularly pleasing to see a joint camera nomination for two female cinematographers working on a challenging period drama. We are competing against other Universities in the region such as Derby, Birmingham, Nottingham and Staffordshire – and we will find out the results on 28th February at the awards ceremony, which will include a special Lenny Henry sponsored award, and if successful the students will go through to the national award ceremony in June.

The winners will be announced at a celebratory ceremony on the evening of Thursday 28th February at The Book Rotunda in The Library of Birmingham, so here’s hoping for some ‘gongs’. Congratulations to the students and staff concerned – ‘and the nominations are’: Continue reading
