LSFM Student Opps: International Mentoring & Filmmaking Project

International Buddy Scheme 1Senior Lecturer Marcella Forster initiated our School’s International Buddy Scheme (picked by the University of Lincoln Student Engagement Innovation Fund 2014) and currently she is recruiting for another batch of LSFM Student Mentors (to start in September 2015).  Marcella said: First and second years from all programmes in LSFM (international students are particularly welcome) can apply. The aim is to provide peer support to our international students during their first year in LSFM. You will be trained in mentoring and cross-cultural awareness. This qualifies for the Lincoln Award. Email for details and an application form. Applications MUST be returned to me by 23rd March. 

LookingChina2014_Luke-Winter_Zhong ShanPark2If you are interested in making films in CHINA this July, here is a great student opportunity to apply for – it is called Looking China 2015.

LookingChina2014_airportschedule Marcella took part with our former students in 2014:  Luke Winter, Thomas McKie, Ashley Wilks and Alexander Whitcombe (pictured on the plane last summer). These graduates (RTS award winning filmmakers of Facebook Anonymous) will be talking about their Looking China experiences TODAY, Wednesday 18th March, from 4pm to 5pm in Room MC2201 in the MHT Building.

For Looking China 2014 all participants produced a 10-minute film.  Luke on his return from the 16-day filmmaking project in Dalian said: “Making a film in a foreign country alongside my friends and colleagues has been one of the best experiences of my life. The whole experience has been completely eye-opening. This was Ashley’s film about Dalian workers.

Ashley, Luke and Thomas run their own commercial film production company called Wallbreaker Productions and you can see the services they provide here. Alexander Whitcombe was a co-founder/director at Wallbreaker and is based in London working as a freelance motion graphic designer/video editor/camera operator.

  1. Do you have to be a student to apply for this? I am a graduate of the University of Lincoln from 2011 and would be very interested in this opportunity. Please let me know 🙂

    • Hello Lisa. I understand that these opportunities were posted as current student opportunities, and the mentoring one is for our students. I will double check to see if the Looking China one accepts our graduates applying for it and get back to you.
