It has been a fantastic experience to be part of a collaborative project between the LSM and MACE (Media Archive for Central England) because I could do what I love best and produce creative content. My industry passion is producing programmes on whatever platform, and this project was to promote the archives held at MACE into a DVD series. There are nine DVDs and each is based on a city in the Midlands. As part of the LSM teaching team, I had multicultural Leicester which can be traced back almost 2,000 years – thankfully the archives only dated back to the 1920s! Continue reading →

Adam Moss (class of 2010) recently completed working on the OFFICIAL FILM of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
A documentary called FIRST which follows 12 first time Olympians on their journey.
Directed by Caroline Rowland FIRST is a co-production with Mango Films, Southern Cross Cameras, ZenHQ Films
Adam told us:
“I have recently had a very crazy experience being an assistant editor (avid) on the official film of the London 2012 Olympic Games (I also had the opportunity to go and shoot some material too) It has meant working with hundreds of hours of footage and makes editing ‘Void’ my student film seem like a walk in the park! A very eye opening experience”

I am still here at Interflora and work has been busy since I took my promotion for the role of Video Producer (from assistant) back in January. Focusing the brand video slightly more on editorial content (e.g. short documentaries about British grown flowers, wedding competitions and flower school) to managing, shooting, capturing the entire video element for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2012 – Probably the most stressful but extremely fun challenge I’ve had so far.
