Phil Stevens, LSM’s 2010 graduate and one of our media mentors, is a film director & co-runs Red Dog Film with another LSM 2010 alumnus Sam Wardhan. Red Dog Film said “we were lucky enough to be able to record a short interview with Sir David Attenborough when he came to Lincoln to open the Sir Joseph Banks exhibition at The Collection on 14th February. The interview will form part of the interactive website & film that the company is making with StrikeMedia, funded in part by the Heritage Lottery Fund.” The short called ‘Sir Joseph Banks – Endeavour’ had LSM graduates, students and staff (see credits below) working on it. The film’s about the life and legacy of the British botanist, explorer, naturalist and High Sheriff of Lincolnshire who has been hailed as ‘one of the great men of his age’. According to the Natural History Museum, Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820) was long-time President of The Royal Society who “steered the course of British science for the first part of the 19th century”. In honour of Banks, the University of Lincoln will be re-naming a building, as part of its Science and Innovation park development, the ‘Joseph Banks Laboratories‘. The filmmakers describe their short doco as a ‘unique insight into the journey of one of science’s greatest unsung heroes’. Continue reading

Lincoln School of Media graduates and some of our students have been on-location to shoot a short called ‘Lancaster’.
It is a period drama about the Lancaster bomber crew on what would turn out to be their final mission across occupied Europe. Graduate Phil Stevens & Red Dog Film was commissioned by East Lindsey District Council to make this film for the Lancaster’s 75th anniversary later this year. The crew are now in the editing stage, and sound post production will take place at the Lincoln Sound Theatre in the School of Media. ‘Lancaster’ is due to premier in June.
LSM’s Senior Lecturer Chris Hainstock said: “The Lancaster film project has just finished four days’ shooting in and around Lincolnshire. Written and directed by some of our graduates, Phil Stevens and Lewis Gemmill. The Director of Photography is another graduate Stewart MacGregor, and Denise Barry was make up/wardrobe.
I have set up a Twitter feed @lancastermovie and also a Facebook page. A big thank you to Tom Mckie (Level 2 media prod student) and Ross McGowan (Level 3 media prod student) who acted as camera assistants and runners for the entire shoot, including the night shoot 5pm to 7am!”
