Hannah Wilson, Class of 2012 | Designer at Grazia Magazine

HannahWilson_2003GradI can’t quite believe that I moved to Lincoln to start my degree just over 6 years ago now, and that I’ve had a full time job in London for over three!  I studied Contemporary Lens Media, now BA (Hons) Photography, at Lincoln, and can honestly say I wouldn’t have the job I do today without my degree from the university; not only because of the skills that I learnt whilst studying, or even just having the title on my CV, but the fact that it gave me three years of uninterrupted time to build a solid portfolio that I could proudly take to interview with prospective employers. Our lecturers used to tell us to treasure the time, because rarely would we ever have as much time to invest in making work again. How right they were!  

I currently work at Grazia magazine in London. My role is on the the art desk, designing pages for the magazine and editing images to choose the best ones to send to print each week. Continue reading

Headspace 2015 Industry Event | Lincoln School of Film & Media

Today’s HEADSPACE was LSFM’s on-campus industry event organised by Senior Lecturer Zara Healy. Our Visiting Professor Trevor Dann opened the day. He introduced industry guests, who were primarily our alumni and BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s Managing Editor Charlie Partridge. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain an insight into the range of employment after graduation. Work can be in many forms as our graduates shared why they started their own media businesses; how to leap from local radio into local telly as well as network TV; and doing forms of digital media to pursue their passions.  Here are some moments captured at Headspace 2015 – networking and socialising.

Ashley Bryan, Class of 2012 | Multimedia Designer

AshleyBryan-1_2012GradFor the past two years now I’ve been working for a car dealership conglomerate, as a Multimedia Designer. Having studied Media Production at the University of Lincoln, I was quite astounded and pleased to have got into a media job, which is what I have always wanted to do since college (which I also did a Media Production course on).

Personally I felt like having a strong showreel of visual work I made at the University contributed quite a lot to getting the job, and also having a website made it easy for people to get access to my work and see first hand the kind of quality they could expect. My showreel and website can be found at www.ashleybryan.co.uk, which features my professional and personal works ranging from 2D info graphics to fully 3D renders and environments.

Ash Knight, Class of 2009 | Update on Knightvisions Productions

AshKnight_knightvisions-productions-logo2009 alumnus Ash Knight is busy as usual as a Media Producer and Director at Knightvisions Productions. It’s a video production indie and for the last few months Ash has been developing the focus of his company, as you’ll see at his updated KVP site. He said: I am motivated by producing unique, refined, artistic content that culturally educates and inspires my audience.

For example last month: “Knightvisions Productions provided camera-crew and production support to Ed Cole Photography on the mini-documentary Catching the Light … Ed seeks out what he considers to be the optimal conditions for catching a great photograph.”
