With students taking a break from their studies and tutors are marking, we reflect and look ahead with LSFM’s Senior Lecturer, and Joint Programme Leader for Media Production, Chris Hainstock:It has been a busy Semester overall and we hope you have found it challenging, in a positive way! As we look for inspiration for next year – why not take a look at our students and graduates’ work.
Meet the Graduates is Lincoln School of Film & Media’s annual alumni event on-campus for students to connect with creatives from the working world. Former students from 2002 to 2017 shared their experiences, tips and advice with current students on the 14th November with a Question Time Graduate Panel and Networking. You’ll see clips from the event from a student crew with New Media Lincs soon. In the meantime, here are some reflections from final year students and graduates:
Jo Ashman, Class of 2002 works in television from X-Factor to Springwatch: “The Mentoring programme and Meet the Grads are excellent initiatives. Getting to question people in the industry, actually doing the job you hope to do one day, is such a great opportunity for the students, one I wish I’d had when I was studying.”Continue reading →
