Dan Davison, LSFM Student | Chris Packham’s BioBlitz Video

Bioblitz-crew_Oct2016The pitch for a video was originally put up on the LSFM Academy Facebook page, where information was being given out about Chris Packham coming to do the University of Lincoln’s first-ever BioBlitz eventI have notifications turned on for the LSFM page (coincidentally this is the most consistent tip I’d pass on to other students), some things may not apply but occasionally a job pops up and I’m usually one of the first to see it. BioBlitz is the term used to describe an area-wide survey of the life during a set time period. In this case it was a full day on 3rd October 2016 at Brayford Pool campus. We had a meeting with various staff at the School of Life Sciences – organisers of the event – and tutors from Lincoln School of Film & Media (LSFM). Here’s a BioBlitz short film with Visiting Professor, at the School of Life Sciences & LSFM, and naturalist presenter Chris Packham captured by a LSFM crew.

I am in my final year (Level 3 Media Production) at LSFM   Continue reading

Steph Marshall, Graduand | Trainee Executive, Papillon PR

It is only one week on from my final hand-in of three amazing years of Film and Television at the University of Lincoln School of Film & Media, and Monday was my first day of my first graduate job, which is strangely not in film or television. Although I still love the media industry, somewhere during my first year I started to develop an interest in PR and marketing, so rather than panic about being on the wrong degree course (which admittedly, I did for a while), I began to put into place the experience and the skills that would lead me into that industry. I am a Trainee Accounts Executive at Papillon PR.

Last year I was among the first batch of students to take part in the LSFM mentoring scheme, which was an invaluable experience and one that I would urge all LSFM students to undertake if they can. The mentor I was paired with was Jez Ashberry, director of Shooting Star PR in Lincoln, and we had regular correspondence offering industry advice and alike, which then led into a two-week work experience placement at the company.

What really got me the job at Papillon was not my degree subject, or even my grade classification (which I don’t even get for another 6 weeks!), it was my CV. Continue reading
