Opportunities at Red Bee Media

From University of Lincoln graduate Tim Nicholls: My company Red Bee Media currently has opportunities for work placements in the creative division.   “Red Bee CREATIVE is the crack team who devise all those memorable bits between the programmes on TV. We’re talking the trailers and Idents which are internationally acclaimed for their originality, flair and wit. But our work is not only on TV, we transform media brands by creating content for any platform and on any device. Our teams specialize in all types of short-form content, so our projects range from web programmes to digital / social media campaigns.”

This would be a good opportunity for LSM graduates to gain experience. The deadline for the next short list is 30th September. Details and Applications. Download application form.

Q: Why are Contracts like Train Connections? A: They Never Arrive When You Need Them.

It is literally three years ago since I wrote my first blog for the LSM page. I know this because I just read it again to remind myself what I wrote in preparation for writing this entry. Hopefully my grammar has improved since then!
