Philip Rollett, Class of 2014 | Audio Production Engineer

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.

PhilipRollett_2014_AP-GradAbout 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

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.

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.
