MEDIA SHOW IN THE PIPELINE

 

More than 100 Lincoln students are busy preparing for an end-of-year degree show next week with a guest list of local media and influential people from the arts world.

 

The third-years will be the first on the Media Production programme at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside to graduate from the Lincoln campus. The show, on Wednesday, 31st May, will be held in the three lecture theatres in the main building and is the students’ chance to show off their work to staff, other students and members of the public.

 

Media production student James Waddell is helping to organise the show as well as adding the finishing touches to his own TV work.

 

“This is the first time the show has taken place in Lincoln and as these are also the first students to graduate here it’s quite an exciting time,” said James, who has directed a television studio group project called ‘Chomping at the Bit’ which he describes as ‘Changing Rooms’ meets ‘Parkinson’.

 

Among the guests invited to the evening event are representatives of Eastern Screen Commision, local television and radio stations and Lincoln City Council.

 

Spoof action film ‘In the Name of the Killing’ will be one of the projects screened - it is in the style of James Bond and features jet ski scenes. This film has been entered for the Wrangler Short Film award.

 

The daytime event will be open to the public who will be able to see the students’ films and hear the radio productions in one of the university’s multi-media lecture theatres.

 

Thirty projects will be submitted for final assessment - the result of many months of hard work on the part of students and lecturers.

 

The Lincoln graduation ceremonies will take place at Lincoln Cathedral on 11th July.
