School News

From Sarah Barrow:

LSM Senior Lecturer Chris Hainstock has been accepted onto the Guild of British Film and Television Editors, and will appear in due course on their list of members.

Well done Chris – fantastic and well deserved recognition of your skills, experience and expertise.

I’m also delighted to announce that, against stiff competition from top class scholars from around the world, Rob Coley impressed a panel of 2 Pro-Vice Chancellors, 1 Dean of Research, 1 Faculty Director of Research and me … and was offered the post. He accepted!

Rob’s post represents a significant and very much appreciated sign of confidence in LSM generally, in our research agenda (aligning theory and practice), and in our imminent REF submission.

Meet the LSM Graduates

Meet the Graduates (MtG 2013), our networking event, was a good get together for students (and staff) to meet fifteen LSM’s alumni.  2012 graduate Katie Martin captured some of our alumni on the day and asked what they are doing?

Bird's eye view: Graduate Question Time

Bird’s eye view: Graduate Question Time

The Graduate Question Time was not rose tinted views, but honest realistic perspectives. Graduates talked frankly about their experiences in looking for work, pursuing their passions and reflecting on when they were students. They even agreed that tutors are humans with experience and lots to offer!  Trending was to use social media platforms, get business cards and set up your own blog now (students) to showcase your work. Other talking points … Continue reading

Hello everyone! Well it has almost been a year since I left the United Kingdom to study at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. After meeting Sarah Barrow who visited San Francisco for a conference and showing her around both the city and the Academy, it was suggested that I give an update blog…which I am happy to do of course!

Paul Rook, class of 2010

“Don’t turn anything down. Whatever the work is, take it, and be prepared to do things at short notice.”

After finishing my degree in May 2010 I went about applying for a few media jobs that I saw on the opportunities at Lincoln website. After a couple of interviews and rejections I decided making money was the most important thing for me to do. Continue reading

Jack Shaw, class of 2008 / 2010

My journey from university to working life has not been easy, having spent 20 months living on sofas and busking to make money, however if you want  to do something bad enough, then you’ve just got to do it.

I went to university with two aims, to be as creative as possible and meet loads of people on the same wavelength as me. At the time I had come from an art background with a small amount of experience in Video production. Throughout the first two years of the Media Production Bachelors Degree I began to develop as a creative thinker.

Adam, alive and well in San Francisco

“You want to work in America? You want to go back into education? Why not study in America!?”

After I graduated in BA Hons Media Production back in 2008, I found myself in a bit of a standstill. Although I was still thinking of ideas and wanting to write screenplays, I ended up in an office job. During the height of the recession, I was grateful to have a job.
