Mentoring | Industry and LSFM, Lincoln School of Film & Media

LSFM Mentoring is a unique way to link industry with selected undergraduates. Thanks very much to volunteer mentors from the world of work who make time to support our final year or level 2 students in an academic year.  Each mentor brings their experience of the job market to help our students, during their course, as they plan goals and pursue passions for a career. In the past our mentors and mentees have explored everything from work opportunities to discussing dissertations. Pairs are in contact at least 6 times across semesters, so may be around 6-12 hours during the academic year. Contact time is flexible and pairs choose how to meet: face-to-face, talking on the phone, having a web chat or using other online platforms.

Mentors are offered an induction to mentoring, written guidelines and thereafter student-mentee liaises with mentor. Interested in being a media mentor? Then read the introduction and you can download the form to register your interest anytime: LSFM Mentoring_Introduction  |  LSFM_MENTOR_Registration-Form

Our industry mentors are freelancers to company directors and work across the media sector in animation; audio; communications; design; digital marketing; filmmaking; photography; radio; social media; teaching; technology; and TV. Continue reading

Luke Pickering, Class of 2012 | Rising Star Pro Sound Award

IMG_1371 CONGRATS to ‘Rising Star 2017′ Luke Pickering, BA (Hons) Audio Production in 2012, who picked up an industry award for up and coming talent: I’m over the moon to have won the Pro Sound Rising Star award. There was some amazing talent and credentials amongst the other nominees so it’s a genuine surprise to be chosen, and I’m very grateful.

ProSoundawards2017-LukePickering-2012GradHe works for Paul Epworth – award winning (Grammy, Academy, The Brits) music producer and songwriter - as Assistant Engineer in-house at The Church Studios.  Luke reflected on his Audio Production  course: There were a vast range of essential skills I would have struggled to learn elsewhere. There’s obviously the technical stuff but just as importantly you learn how to work in a group and to be part of a team – after all, people skills will be one of your most valuable assets when you’re in the industry! Read the news story from the University of Lincoln press office.

Dani Moseley, Class of 2007 | Multimedia Career update

Actors HeadshotsDani Moseley’s creative career has clocked up ten years from acting (film & TV) to award winning script writing, as well as modelling and facilitating workshops, after graduating in media production. She’s one of our inspirational industry mentors and also, er, our annual blogger! It’s nearly been a year already since I last posted in … Meet the Graduates was great. Lovely meeting some of you and my mentee, who I have been in contact with all year and glad to hear she’s applying for as many things as she sees fit regardless of the outcome, as you just never know.

LA and New York were amazing. Got management out there before I even landed, which was cool. It was just nice to be there, by myself, seeing how life could be. It was the first time in a long while that I got to solely focus on my acting and it was heavenly. Did a few auditions, signed up to a few casting sites out there, caught up with my agent who I met early that year and we’re still very much in-tune with each other which is great. Continue reading

Joanne Newton, Class of 2017 | My Graduation 05.09.2017

Joanne-Newton-Graduation2017Joanne Newton BA (Hons) Media Production, Class of 2017: What a day!  I don’t even know where to begin! Feels a bit of a whirlwind.

Graduating next to everyone I’ve worked so hard with for three years makes me incredibly proud of not only myself but everyone around me. And having the chance to experience this in such an amazing building is something I will never forget! I feel very proud and very lucky right now, and having my degree in my hands feels so surreal.
