Here’s your invitation to the ANIMATION DEGREE SHOW 2016. Doors will open at 12.30 on Wednesday 1st June at University of Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (LPAC), Brayford Pool, LN6 7TS. The show’s free and all are welcome.
Join us for the show at 1pm in LPAC and see a showcase of stunning students’ work on the BA (Hons) Animation course at the Lincoln School of Film & Media. For about a couple of hours there’ll be screenings and a short session for awards. The Animation Degree Show will be a lovely way to celebrate end of year work and meet the animators.
During my final year at Lincoln School of Film & Media (2014) I worked solo on projects and this was all down to what I could personally do, to understand what are my strengths & weaknesses – of course I loved every moment of working in a group because it was an extraordinary experience & I will never forget the people I once worked with. I have always been passionate with my work & I have loved the feeling of having the freedom of what I can produce, so I discovered a few weeks after graduation I could develop my own business. The planning process of creating a business took me just over a year to establish, it has been a long & winding road over the last twelve months but it has been worth the time & in order to build a business you need to be 100% in what you are doing you need to be sure that everything meets the criteria.
I got guidance from multiple sources while I was in the “thinking” stages of starting up a business & they were much needed, I have attended meetings from the (Uni) Careers & Employability team. Continue reading

Recent graduate Philip Rollett will be on-campus for LSFM’s HEADSPACE event on 6th May with other working audio & radio alumni to share their own industry advice with students. Philip opted for self-employment to start his new business.
About a month ago I was ready to give up on running my own audio company, it seemed like an impossible, thankless, task. I was constantly thinking if I was going to be able to earn a living from a degree that I’d dedicated so much time and money to. You find that you are no longer just an audio engineer, you’re a social media marketer, website developer and a phone salesman. I set my company up Start! Audio in July last year, with the help of my part time employer Howard Young (Engine 7 Post Production), this was around two months after finishing my degree in Audio Production. This is original sound design for Sky Ride Video Ride.
Howard took me on part time after I spent a few days with him in his studio. Continue reading
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.
A quick update about Luma St. (2013) from LSFM Senior Lecturer Sultan Efe. The animation was made by our former students who worked collaboratively during their degree courses from animation to audio production. The creative team, 2014 graduates Daniel Escobar, Alex Kirkwood, Alexander Stokes, Samuel Brierley, Adam Horsepool and music/sound by Nathan James Lewis, is making a global name for Luma St. in festivals (again!).
The BFI Future Film Festival (20th-22nd February) is in its eighth year, and organisers said “it is bigger and better than ever!” On Friday 20th it will be having a new Animation+ day. The Fest will be screening The Magpie, a film that was made by former Lincoln School of Film & Media students. You can now watch The Magpie, which was created when in their final year as animation students, by William Wivell and Gary Davies. Will’s got in touch to add: credit, too, to Jake Longworth, the 3D concept work and post-production guy and Estelle Sharpe, who assisted with the animation. The sound design was created by audio production graduates Lilly Cording and Alex O’Brien. Alex said: “The Magpie was a fantastic project to be a part of. I learnt a lot about working with animation and how important music and sound really are in this genre. As a team we are incredibly proud to have our film shown at the BFI Future Film Festival next month and we are excited to see what may come of it.”
Following on from recent screenings at film fests Luma St. has more good news. 2014 Animation graduate Daniel Escobar who created, edited and directed the short said: Luma St. has been nominated for the finalists in the International digital animation festival – Nagoya 2014 (it’s in Japan). It’s also been accepted into the Reel Genius International Film Festival and for those of you who haven’t seen the film, it is in a public competition at the audience awards.
