What Makes us Special

 
Creative innovation and technical expertise in film-making, TV production, audio and radio, digital photography, animation, screenwriting and design for media are brought together through our range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in media production. We are constantly updating our focus in new areas such as SMOKE editing software, virtual reality, Adobe Cloud-based working etc. Our 2015 Showcase is here - and 2014 showreel is here 
 
Critical, analytical and historical study of all media forms complements and enriches the practical production work.
 
The impact of new technologies and their convergence in the international arena is a key area for exploration, debate and experimentation in our practical and critical modules. We use HD systems in editing and the television studios. Recent film production equipment additions include Canon C100, Sony FS100 cameras, and a full Pro-Tools Sound for Film Theatre with Foley room
  
Our industry programme of prestigious guest speakers includes visitors from Channel 4, the BBC, ITV and Sky, as well as a host of independent broadcasters and creative practitioners, including from our own body of successful graduates.
 
Collaborative practical projects, work experience and commissions for external businesses and organisations are on offer to all our students. Partners have included the NHS, Interflora, Lincolnshire Co-operative Society, Siemens, and Visit Lincolnshire.
 
A state-of-the-art, digitally-integrated production environment is provided by Lincoln School of Film & Media via the Media and Broadcast Production Centre, including two high specification TV studios, a brand new dubbing theatre and foley suite, industry standard kit to support all our courses, and a wide range of software. Film Production is a key component of our courses and we have a wide range of HD Cameras - Canon C100, Sony FSX100, Panasonic 151, and a range of DSLR cameras.
 
The first Knowledge Transfer Partnership for Media with an award-winning integrated media marketing project for Interflora, was developed by the School of Media. http://lismalumni.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk 
 
 
Award-winning, highly acclaimed academics and practitioners make up the committed lecturing team. Collectively, the staff team boasts over 350 years of media industry experience for the major broadcasters, independent companies and as freelancers.

Our Visiting Professors include BAFTA award-winning radio expert and former BBC Radio 1 producer Trevor Dann who ran the Radio Academy until October 2010 and before that launched the careers of Chris Evans and Danny Baker. We’re proud also to be associated with film and TV documentary-maker Professor Nick Gray, writer and broadcaster Dr Chris Riley, film academic and critic Professor Neil Sinyard, and former Head of Warner Brothers, Professor Rick Senat, all of whom have been appointed as Visiting Professors or Fellows with the University.

 
In 2010, we gained Academy membership status with the Institute of Videography, the main point of reference in the UK for those who wish to gaining knowledge about public and private sector education, training and mentoring providers for all avenues of professional videography. www.iov.co.uk/academy 
 
Research carried out in the School is of international quality. This includes the award-winning ‘Televising History’ project, led by Professor Ann Gray. We also host the Centre for European Cultural Studies and are closely associated with the Lincoln Centre for Journalism. Prof. Brian Winston has been widely published around the world and is the founding chair of British Association of Film, Television and Media Studies, sits on the editorial board of British Journalism Review and is a Guest Professor at Beijing Normal University. Our Beeb is a web forum where matters relating to the BBC can be argued, discussed, and developed. As its new editor, Professor Brian Winston will now oversee the important debate on the nature of public service broadcasting in the UK. 
 
Our innovative Alumni blog - http://lismalumni.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/  - provides a forum for graduates and current students to network and record stories of life after university. Our graduates are now employed by some of the most prestigious media industry organisations across the world, from MTV to Nintendo, and many have started their own businesses or work as freelancers. Others go into careers in teaching and research.
 
Sparkhouse, our business incubation unit, provides a comprehensive support package for students and graduates who want to start their own companies with a base in Lincoln. It is based in the Enterprise Building close to the campus.
 
Siren FM, the community radio station located at the University (the first of its kind in the UK), provides an invaluable resource for live broadcast opportunities in a professional environment. In 2013, Siren won the Radio Academy's 'East Midlands Station of the Year'. 
 
The University’s ground-breaking ‘Student as Producer’ project includes ambassadors from Media staff and students engaged in research-led teaching and learning activities.
