As soon as I graduated in 2011 with a BA (Hons) in Media Production I applied for a Master in Historical Studies at the University of Lincoln. I have always been passionate about History and it is my dream job to produce Historical documentaries. By doing this course I have been able to develop my skills which will be important for creating documentaries and other historical products. Since graduating I have gained experience working with the BBC on their BBC 2 show Flog It! This has provided me with valuable experience and has presented possible networking opportunities for when I finish my Masters course.
I graduated in Media Production and almost immediately walked into an internship with a leading London-based production company. I must have made an impression because that resulted in being commissioned to do freelance backstage footage editing for The X-Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Apprentice. Much of this video production work was delivered in London. Since then I’ve put my knowledge and experience into providing a value for money videography service to businesses and private individuals alike – with my work now ranging from weddings through to single camera corporate videos.
“…apply for absolutely every realistic entry level opportunity that there is out there, because you never know who you will meet and where it will lead to, even if it is as little as making the director a cup of coffee and sweeping the floor.”
Since leaving Uni I have spent time gaining short term experience at different companies around the UK. I worked with companies local to the uni such asBlueprint Films and Darren Scales’ Backyard Productions, both of which were brilliant opportunities and helped me to learn a great deal about the industry.
The School of Media is delighted to announce that 2 films from last year’s 3rd year projects have been successful in receiving shortlist nominations from the RTS (Royal Television Society) for their Midlands Awards ceremony which will take place later this year.
We would like to congratulate Adam Clark and Dominic White and their production teams on this notable success & the inspiration that it provides for all our students. The nominations are in the Fiction and Entertainment categories and are listed below along with the RTS judging panel comments.
Fiction: “Breakpoint” – Dominic White and team. The judges thought that this was a very strong drama. Well shot, excellent locations which added to the dramatic effect. Good direction and production and believable acting.
Entertainment: “Porcelain” – Adam Clark The judges felt that this was particularly well written and was witty and engaging. It was entertaining, clever and the character of the mug was very well developed. A strong entry.
After graduating with a degree in media production I took the usual route of trying to get as much experience as possibleunder my belt, in my chosen field of audio. I was fortunate enough to get land 5 different work experience placements across production facilities for Radio and Sound Post-Production for Film and TV.
I am still here at Interflora and work has been busy since I took my promotion for the role of Video Producer (from assistant) back in January. Focusing the brand video slightly more on editorial content (e.g. short documentaries about British grown flowers, wedding competitions and flower school) to managing, shooting, capturing the entire video element for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2012 – Probably the most stressful but extremely fun challenge I’ve had so far.
ERIKA BUTCHER graduated in 2011, with a Degree in Media Production and a prize for best student in a producer role.
Erika, said in 2011 “I originally worked in a theatre, but moved over to admin to pay bills. I tried to get back into the creative side of things, but it was so difficult without prior film experience. I came to University to further my career.”
