University of Lincoln School of Film and Media final year students will showcase their creative work at the Lincoln Theatre Royal THIS weekend, and YOU are invited. It is the first time the historic city venue has staged a two-day multimedia exhibition by third year undergraduates and it is the first time the annual event is off-campus. The LSFM Degree Show is an opportunity for the public to see original, experimental and creative content in the Grade II listed theatre: from pop-up spaces like the Writers’ Room and take part in script reading to dressing rooms transformed into individual cinema booths. Screenings will be in the 450-seat Victorian auditorium, also above and below the stage will be design and digital exhibitions. Even the bar will turn into a gallery and backstage a sound and radio installation space. The LSFM Degree Show is FREE and open to the public on Saturday 11am-7pm & Sunday 11am-4pm. Wheelchair access is limited to the ground floor and some content may not be suitable for children. Here’s the programme and this is the LSFM Degree Show trailer. Music by our 2012 audio production graduate Simon Ross.
Frequency Festival of Digital Culture will be on in Lincoln (UK) from 23rd October to 1st November 2015 and you can be a part of it. Organisers said: the biennial festival provides a platform to celebrate the pioneering spirit of digital innovation and culture through exhibition, creative collision and debate. See the schedule of free events on the Frequency Festival site. This trailer was created by Graham Cooper and David McSherry, Senior Lecturers at the 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.
Many thanks to our creative alumni: Continue reading

From Paul Hough, Creative Media Work Placement Manager at Broadway in Nottingham: We are holding a 3 day ‘Hack’ event at Broadway – as part of our Know How programme – and during the BUILD we want people to get hands on and practical, working towards building working prototypes over the three days 14th – 16th May. We are putting together ‘teams’ of designers and developers to work with key Arts organisations across the region and I am looking for graduate students to be part of these teams. We also are looking for non-graduate designers and developers – academics, freelancers, artists and makers may also be interested.

For 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.

Will at last night’s award ceremony: Stunned to have won Best Use of Multimedia at Lincs Digital Awards 2015. Amazing joint effort between Homelet and our team. So proud to have been part of an “award winning” partnership. Homelet said it was “delighted to have partnered with Epix Media on an amazing campaign recently – thrilled it’s been recognised with an award!”

Meet the Graduates lived up to its name as our former and current students got together for the Graduate Question Time and Networking on-campus. Thanks to everyone for making it a memorable alumni event. There are more posts to come and clips from a student crew via New Media Lincs.
