On Tuesday the 11th September 2018 I concluded my 3 years as a student of LSFM, Lincoln School of Film and Media. Graduation is something we aim to achieve, but it isn’t until the day arrives that you are filled in a concoction of sadness that your undergraduate journey has ended, and pride at everything you have achieved in your time at Uni. The day involves seeing all your friends and family whilst sharing in each other’s happiness, taking thousands of photos so you can remember the day, seeing your lecturers and having them congratulate you on your achievements.
The ceremonies involve a lot of clapping! But all in all, the day revolves around pride. Pride in your own accomplishments, feeling the pride from your friends and family, pride in your school and pride within yourself. Tell people what you have been up to since leaving because they are genuinely interested and want the best for you. It doesn’t matter whether you got a job in the industry straight off the bat, or if you are taking some time out to think about what you really want to do, everyone will be proud of you.
Excited! TODAY 11th of September 2018 is a memorable day for LSFM’s graduands. We are proud of our students’ achievements at the University of Lincoln School of Film & Media. Our Graduation ceremony will be at the lovely Lincoln Cathedral at 2.30pm. The Cathedral doors will open at 1.30pm and all seated please by 2pm. Reminder for graduands and guests to head to the Lincoln Castle grounds to collect your tickets from the Ticketing Desk and your gown from the gowning marquee. #LoveLincoln Graduation Ceremonies will be streaming live.
We will get an insider’s view of Grad Day with soon-to-be Class of 2018 Imogen Hayes – read her previous post about getting a job – so watch this space!

I have been asked to write for the Alumni page a few times, but I have always had a goal in mind which I strived to achieve, before I started to look back.
Today I am sitting on a laptop in my apartment in West Hollywood, living a life I had dreamt about for over 14 years. So I thought it was a good time to write something.
This is a very long story, BUT if you prevail to the end, like all good stories, there are some valuable lessons inside.
From University to Editing
I got my first video camera for Christmas when I was 15 and never put it down. Like most, I grew up dreaming of working in Hollywood, directing movies.
I studied Media Production between 2007-2010 specialising in Single Camera and Digital Media. By the end of the course I was passionate about all aspects of the degree, even the parts I left behind in previous semesters. After graduating I was undecided on what to do next, my first thought was to do a Masters. In order to pay for it, I decided to take a year out, get the first job I could find as I saved up.
The job turned out to be the Mcdonalds at the end of my road. While working behind the grill, I applied for jobs and work experience at various production houses to gain media experience. After hundreds of emails and applications, and 7 or 8 interviews for Runner and junior positions, I was unsuccessful. I needed experience, which I was unable to get. I was trapped in the classic catch 22. Continue reading
