Nick, who graduated in July 2012, is now a videographer and motion artist at a creative agency:

“I primarily do camera work and edit for a whole range of clients. It can include corporate videos, content for digital platforms, advertisements, internal work and anything else that comes our way. I also get involved in the art direction for projects.

After leaving University I did think hard about what I gained from it:

Being surrounded by an overwhelming amount of fascinating reading was incredibly beneficial. The theoretical side of the course helped me understand that there is a rabbit hole of information that can open up a whole world of wonders.

The practical side of the course gave me a chance to get creative. I have a hard time putting my thoughts into words, so the opportunity to learn a discipline and use it to convey thoughts into presentable pieces was tremendously satisfying.

The experience of being around people with so much talent (both staff and students) was encouraging and inspiring. I think this is a point that is often taken for granted.

The course was amazingly helpful and I truly believe without the Intensive Production module, I wouldn't be working where I am now. It made me confident in creating an idea and turning it into a piece of work. When presented with a brief, I get a whole load of ideas based on things I learnt about on the course. Most of all, it made me work hard". 

and another....

Michelle Henning is running an introductory four week course for Media Culture & Practice and Media & Journalism students. A frenetic but playful immersion in digital media and cultural theory, we have already seen some clever and imaginative work uploaded to our Facebook group. The images below are the result of an enquiry into the conventions and meanings of portrait photography that involved a pop-up portrait studio, dressing up and props, and online image manipulation....
