Aleysha Minns, Class of 2013 | Film, Key Locations Assistant

Aleysha Minns, Class of 2013 Intern at Warp Films

I genuinely cannot believe it has been over 4 years since I graduated from Lincoln, time has definitely flown by. As always, it’s been another eventful year for me in the world of feature films. In just over a year, I have gone from being a Locations Trainee to Key Locations Assistant on some of the biggest films currently being made in the UK. My involvement in these are still under wraps and I can’t wait for them to hit cinema (one is due in just over a month!)

In other news, LSFM Mentoring: my 4th mentee finished her final year and did incredibly well! I’m very proud of Hannah Darby and she is definitely going to go far. I shall hopefully be meeting my 5th mentee very soon. I have also been selected as one of 50 people to join the HETV Connect scheme based around High-End Drama recruitment, sponsored by and Creative Skillset. I have just attended the first networking event in London with some incredible production companies and hopefully can expand my work back into TV Drama.

Sadly, I couldn’t make Meet the Grads this year … 

… but I will be doing a 2nd year lecture on 27th November 5:30-6:30pm in MB0603. ALL YEARS are welcome to attend if you are interested in hearing about working in film (and finding out about my un-wraps productions), CV advice and what you can do right now to get your foot in the door. Be prepared for an honest lecture and feel free to ask any questions you may have. Hopefully see a lot of you there!
