Media students to help at RAF air show

From Dr Sarah Barrow, LSM Head of School:

“12 students from Lincoln School of Media have been selected to attend the 2011 Royal Air Force Waddington International Air Show on 2 and 3 July as ‘press’.

They each received free passes for the weekend which give them special access to the press area, all the crew and behind-the-scenes activity.

Their task is to use their media expertise to create a range of innovative recordings of the day – in radio, audio, film, photography, animation – and to prepare these for broadcast, exhibition, screening or display in September.

This fantastic assignment has been made possible by ongoing collaborations with RAF Waddington’s Communications Office, who are this year sponsoring a graduation prize for the best Media student in a Producer role, and in particular to their Chief Communications Officer Flt Lt Darren Scales, who graduated with a Masters in Media Production from the LSM two years ago.”

Do come along and say hello to the team on the MHT stand if you’re coming to the Air Show. It’s a great family day out, with something for everyone of every age (don’t forget ear protection for young children as it gets very loud)!
