The University of Lincoln Students’ Union will launch the brand new Lincoln School of FIlm & Media Society on Friday 29th March. The event will be held in The Platform, above The Engine Shed, from 6:30pm to 8.00pm and all at LSFM are welcome to come. Here’s a message from President of the LSFM Society, Media Production student, Naomi Lawson:
The event will essentially be an opportunity to experience a taster social at The Platform. There’ll be a finger-food buffet, the bar will be open and there will board games and a quiz with prizes. The committee will do a short presentation about what our society is and what we intend to do, but other than this it will be a chance to socialise and meet students and staff from different areas of LSFM.

Graduating can seem like a joyous but also daunting process, entering the ‘real world’ of employment and fulfilling those career dreams. But the question I found was where do I start? After completing BA (Hons) Media Production at the University of Lincoln in 2010 I knew I wanted to pursue a career in photography or film, but didn’t know how to even remotely achieve it as well as be able to afford to live. There are a lot of free internships out there to gain experience but I didn’t have the savings or come from a location where I could do it living from my family home.
So I decided to go travelling, visiting New Zealand, Australia and Fiji. Upon my return still none the wiser I continued in a trade I had worked in since a teenager, catering. But knew that although it had taught me a lot and shown me that a hands-on job role is what I would like, it was not going to get me closer to the world of media. I also tried my hand at family portraits and wedding photography but realised this was not the job that I wanted to pursue long term. Living in Lincoln helped me gain knowledge and understanding of other options, the main one being that the Royal Air Force has a photographer role, after deciding to join, I completed all the tests required and was on basic training within 6 months of sending that application form off.
I haven’t looked back, it has given me so much opportunity in photography but also in so many other aspects. Continue reading
Excited to see Indie-Lincs International Film Festival will be on in Lincoln (UK) from 14th to 16th February 2019. The fest “champions low and micro budget films and their filmmakers” and it was started 4 years’ ago by multi award-winning filmmaker and LSFM Senior Lecturer Dr Mikey Murray.
Indie-Lincs said: Tickets for Friday and Saturday are £5 concession / £10 full price for a day pass, or £8 concession / £15 full price for the weekend pass. There is an additional 20% discount on advanced ticket sales via the Lincoln Performing Arts website, so don’t delay – that’s less than the price of a single visit to the Odeon, but in this instance you will have a choice of 7 feature films and nearly 50 shorts, with many of the filmmakers in attendance. See the full programme here: www.indie-lincs.com.
