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

Alison Oxborrow & Patrick Collins, Class of 2015 | Ethel & Ernest

Our 2015 BA (Hons) Animation alumni Alison Oxborrow and Patrick Collins were part of the creative team at Lupus Films on Ethel & Ernest (2016), which is the production company’s first feature film. The hand-drawn animated film is a true love story based on the book about his parents by author and illustrator Raymond Briggs (creator of The Snowman). Last month, the Ethel & Ernest film was premièred at the BFI London Film Festival 2016 and released in UK cinemas this month.

Alison and Patrick met the film’s Animation Director Peter Dodd and Head of Assistant Animation Denise Dean during their degree course at the University of Lincoln.  Patrick said:  I wouldn’t be where I am now if I hadn’t studied animation in Lincoln. As well as learning about form, construction and animation technique I met some great people who actually work in the industry. When I saw that Denise was looking for assistant animators to work on the film, I jumped at the chance. Read the news story by the University of Lincoln press office.  

Peter Dodd will be on-campus on Wed 7 Dec 2016 | 1.30pm Jackson Lecture Theatre

See the animation process on the Ethel & Ernest Production website.
