Meet-the-Graduates-logo-1024x435Meet the Graduates is our annual alumni networking event between our current and former students.  It’s a superb opportunity to share experiences and make connections with the working world.

Aleysha Minns, Class of 2013 | Pinewood Studios & BAFTA Crew

AleyshaMinns_2016As September has come and gone again, seeing my 3rd LSFM media mentee with her graduation photos, it just reminds me of how long ago 2013 feels. The past 3 years have been a bit of a rollercoaster, with the past 12 months being some of the most difficult but incredible of my career so far. 

The last half of 2015 was tough, finding work was a nightmare and I was ready to give up on the whole thing. That was until February of this year, when I got to live out my childhood dream of working at Pinewood Studios on my first big budget film, taking the leap from Production to the Locations/Studio department as a trainee. Confidentiality surrounding these types of films mean I can’t say anything about it until release, but I spent up until August there and has been the lift that I needed. Since then I’ve been working on commercials and have been accepted into BAFTA Crew 2016, which is a huge honour and made it on to the list on my 2nd attempt. To top off the year, Beautiful Devils (2015) premièred at Cannes Film Festival to a great reception and my first ever film credit on ID2:Shadwell Army (2016) recently came out in cinemas and DVD.

Alumni Q&A session | LSFM Creative Enterprise module

Love our graduates back on-campus to share experiences and connect with our students from our annual network event Meet the Graduates (2nd November 2016) to teaching modules. TODAY half a dozen alumni will join our final year students in the Creative Enterprise session and module co-ordinator Zara Healy said: we welcome 6 of our graduates who are all working in multimedia roles. They have all graduated within the last 5 years from LSFM – some are freelance, some are employed full-time and at least 3 have set up their own creative industry companies. The one and a half hour session will be a Question and Answer about how this module’s assessment – pitch and paperwork – has helped graduates in their own pitches, how to develop ideas and present them to help them in their roles in the Media industry.

Fredrika SutcliffeFredrika-Sutcliffe_LSFMStudent is a final year media production student who captured the Lincoln School of Film & Media’s networking event Meet the Graduates on 11th November 2015. She has her own blog because she said: My interests are taking photos, if I see anything interesting or that catches my eye then I photograph it. Meet the Graduates was an inspiring and helpful event that encouraged me to have confidence in myself to connect with others.  Thanks Freddie for your photos of the Graduate Question Time panel, hosted by Darren Scales  (2008) with Sarah Worcester (2015), Steve Smailes  (2012), Gemma Lowe (2012), Jerome Smith (2013), Holly Smith (2010) and other alumni in the audience and at the networking session.
