Thank you to the University of Lincoln for making the day so special! Continue reading

See who is planning to come for LSFM’s free industry network event Meet the Graduates. Former students have posted a profile on their experiences since graduating. Our Grads (their work permitting) have spared time to be on-campus with LSFM students on 8th Nov. THIS Wednesday MtG 2017 is your on-campus opportunity to connect with like-minded creatives, make industry links, share tips on job-hunting and collaborate on projects.
LSFM STUDENTS are invited to take their theatre seat for 2pm in the Stephen Langton Building (SLB) for the Graduate Question Time panel. Ask questions to our alumni who work – on staff and freelance contracts – across the media industry from big corporates (BBC TV) to indies (Epix Media). Please note: Lisa Rustage has just got work on a feature film – at short notice as things tend to be in her job – so she said: “Truly disappointed I cannot make it!”
Luke Pickering, BA (Hons) Audio Production in 2012, who achieved industry recognition at this year’s Pro Sound Rising Star Award is now featured online in JAMES accredited courses about graduate success. Here’s an extract from his interview with Joint Audio Media Education Support, JAMES:
What course did you study at Lincoln and what were the factors that made you choose that one in particular? I had looked at a few options, but for me, the (BA) Audio Production course at Lincoln offered something more than a purely technical perspective on the subject.

Any advice or tips you could offer those currently looking for employment? I can only speak from my own experience, and you might even decide you don’t want a ‘career’ as such! But as far as audio jobs go, keep pushing, keep putting yourself in as many situations where an opportunity might come along. It took me 4 years till that happened for me, with a bit of luck.
