The challenge to support kids in Peru to create any form of media was taken up by some LSFM student volunteers. Sarah Edwards, Amy-Louise Knowles, Harry Marshall, Holly McGratten, Joanne Newton, Yve Odell, Ellie Plummer, Katie Sharpe and Matt Snellin managed to raise a massive £20,000+ for an overseas opportunity. Now in June they are seeing projects their fundraising went to support – and to get creative in South America!
Challenges Abroad UK, support the work of the FutureSense Foundation charity, offer student placements. The Peruvian challenge was ‘help teach media literacy to disadvantaged youth and give them the platform to express themselves while exploring all the beauty Peru has to offer … the opportunity to develop your skills in media literacy … through teaching and facilitating creative and exciting media projects. University of Lincoln College of Arts Deputy Head Dr Sarah Barrow said: The students did so well to raise around £2.5k each towards the costs and a donation to the charity. LSFM offered £150 bursary to each student. The first batch of photos have appeared from the LSFM student team who are on a charity media adventure with kids in the Andes.

The 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 event. I 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.
Meet 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. MtG 2016 held its popular Question Time hosted by Daniel J Layton (Class of 2012). Our audience with alumni spoke about life post-university on anything our students wanted to know. New Media Lincs student crew Daisy Sadeh (Year 1), Bradley Nicholls, Filip Grzejszczyk and James Hunter (in Year 2) captured the Q & A session with LSFM’s Associate Lecturer Andrew West (Class of 2014) who produced this clip.
Grad panel: Jane Hearst, 2016 | Alex O’Brien, 2014 | Dani Moseley, 2007 | Ayodele Ogunshakin, 2015 | Aleysha Minns, 2013 | Jack Johnston, 2009 | Matthew D Bayfield, 2010 | Declan O’mara, 2014 | Jack McQuone, 2015 | and more alumni in the audience.
The Royal Television Society (RTS), an educational charity promoting the arts and science of television, held another series of its student masterclasses on the 14th and 15th November 2016. The first was all about television programming, covering drama, documentaries, journalism and entertainment. In an interview style talk, each speaker would answer questions about their careers, with clips of their work intersected and with an occasional audience Q&A.
First to speak was BAFTA award winner writer/director Sally Wainwright, known for her 2014 drama series Happy Valley. One of the main points in her talk was less is more, an example of this was the end of episode four where the main character has a brutal fight scene, she states part of this was cut as it appeared too violent but it still had the same impact, especially when they decided not to have the end music but the police emergency radio tone through the credits which had previously appeared in the series when an officer was attacked and killed.
