Media Production

Why did you choose Northumbria?

What attracted me to Northumbria at first was the animation side of the course as I had completed an art foundation and was starting to get into the moving image field. I really didn’t have any background in film, but it sounded really interesting to me. Now I’m on it I know made the right decision. The other reason was that I really like Newcastle as a city, it’s vibrant and cultural and has everything a city could offer.

What appealed to you about the subject area?

I am interested in the animation and the stop frame aspect of media production but also the technical side. The hands-on experience you get learning different techniques is great.  There is a lot of support technically from the staff who will answer any questions you have.

What inspires you most about your course?

I think what inspires me most is the people around me and I mean my peers and my tutors.  All of the tutors on the media course are active or were very active in the industry themselves and just talking to them and hearing about their experiences is really amazing because it makes you feel like it’s possible. Also talking to graduates is really beneficial because it shows you you’ll be able to get somewhere after you finish the course.

What are your plans for the future?

I am seriously considering doing another year either in the North East or down in London.  I would ultimately like to return to the North East and work in the film industry here.
