Former Student Returns to College
Former Media Studies student Adam Parkinson came back to College for a brief visit on 9th February.
The purpose of his visit was to talk to this year’s Creative Enrichment group (A2 Media students who want to go into the industry as a career) about his work as a runner in TV Production and Post-Production. His talk covered topics including how to get work and make contacts in the industry, what his working day involves and the reality of what people actually earn. He then completed a Q and A session with the group.
While studying here Adam produced one of the highest achieving Music Video projects in his year group and also completed a Work Placement at Sumners, the largest TV and Post-Production facility outside London, where he now works. Head of Media Fiona Douglas-Reeves commented “It was great to see Adam again and hear about his experiences since leaving College. We’re really grateful to him for giving up his time to come along and inspire our current students, who are hoping to be as fortunate in securing employment in this highly competitive industry.”
