Two first-year Media Technology students from the University of Lincoln in Hull are to go on tour with a leading local record label after their media skills were used to make music videos for the company.


Ray Hogan and Paul Thrippleton will travel alongside the ‘Red Oktober’ record label, after Ray met the company’s managing director Paul Spooner and agreed to produce promotional footage of his signed bands.


The students have already produced videos for bands attached to the label, including Sidewinder, Tekoba and Mr Mojo and are soon to film at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, made popular by the Beatles in the early 1960s.


It is also likely that some of the students’ completed work will be broadcast on Hull’s recently launched student television channel, Spark TV.


“It is always rewarding to see students immerse themselves in their subject of study outside of the lecture theatre,” said John Hamlin, senior lecturer at the Hull School of Media Technologies.


“The students have demonstrated that they are committed to the degree course by involving themselves in a project such as this, and have shown a high level of technical skill and judgement with a real passion for producing quality moving images and sound clips.”
