Thomas Morris, class of 2011

As soon as I graduated in 2011 with a BA (Hons) in Media Production I applied for a Master in Historical Studies at the University of Lincoln. I have always been passionate about History and it is my dream job to produce Historical documentaries. By doing this course I have been able to develop my skills which will be important for creating documentaries and other historical products. Since graduating I have gained experience working with the BBC on their BBC 2 show Flog It! This has provided me with valuable experience and has presented possible networking opportunities for when I finish my Masters course.

Ellen Jackson Class of 2011

I must have made an impression because that resulted in being commissioned to do freelance backstage footage editing for The X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Apprentice. Much of this video production work was delivered in London.  Since then I’ve put my knowledge and experience into providing a value for money videography service to businesses and private individuals alike – with my work now ranging from weddings through to single camera corporate videos.
