Love our graduates back on-campus to share experiences and connect with our students from our annual network event Meet the Graduates (2nd November 2016) to teaching modules. TODAY half a dozen alumni will join our final year students in the Creative Enterprise session and module co-ordinator Zara Healy said: we welcome 6 of our graduates who are all working in multimedia roles. They have all graduated within the last 5 years from LSFM – some are freelance, some are employed full-time and at least 3 have set up their own creative industry companies. The one and a half hour session will be a Question and Answer about how this module’s assessment – pitch and paperwork – has helped graduates in their own pitches, how to develop ideas and present them to help them in their roles in the Media industry.

I 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!
Here’s your INVITATION to LSFM’s Contemporary Lens Media (CLM) Degree Show 2016. It’s free entry and open to the public from this Friday until 10th June at the University of Lincoln Art, Architecture and Design Building (AAD). Clementine Monro, Lincoln School of Film & Media’s Senior Lecturer, said: This year students are featuring works that include the genres of documentary, narrative, experimental and experiential in both the still and moving image. Join us on Friday 27 May at 7pm in the AAD west atrium and photography studio. Then the show’s open daily, including this weekend & Bank Holiday Monday, until June 10th from 10am-4pm. See CLM Resolution gallery, site was designed by Adam Hewitt.
Photography is one of the University of Lincoln’s Design courses ranked 3rd in the UK, according to the National Student Survey 2015.
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.
Fredrika Sutcliffe is a final year media production student who captured the Lincoln School of Film & Media’s networking event Meet the Graduates on 11th November 2015. She has her own blog because she said: My interests are taking photos, if I see anything interesting or that catches my eye then I photograph it. Meet the Graduates was an inspiring and helpful event that encouraged me to have confidence in myself to connect with others. Thanks Freddie for your photos of the Graduate Question Time panel, hosted by Darren Scales (2008) with Sarah Worcester (2015), Steve Smailes (2012), Gemma Lowe (2012), Jerome Smith (2013), Holly Smith (2010) and other alumni in the audience and at the networking session. Thank you to all our graduates and students at the event # Continue reading
Graduand Lucy Bick has posted about her week’s work experience (during Easter) with Marie Claire magazine. This opportunity inspired her when she created her own magazine (pictured on the left) as part of a final portfolio. CLM Degree Show runs until 5 June and you can view Lucy’s page on its exhibition site:
Throughout my three years here studying CLM Contemporary Lens Media (Photography and Video) I have found that my passion within photography is the post production side of it, rather than taking the actual photographs. I much prefer the editing of my images and then creating different layouts with my photographs in my sketchbooks. I have always known that I wanted to work for a magazine but I was unsure of all the different areas within a magazine and what they do. Back in February we had a guest lecturer and a 2013 CLM graduate, Hannah Wilson, who came to give a talk on her work with the art department at Look magazine. From this talk I had much more of an understanding of the different areas within a magazine, and knew that the art department was the area which best suited me. Not long after Hannah’s visit, she passed me on some details of who to get in touch with at Marie Claire to apply for the opportunity of a week’s work experience. Continue reading
