When I look back on my time at Coventry University, it doesn’t seem all that long ago. In reality it’s been almost five years since I sat in my first lecture and so, so, so much has happened since then.
I’ve gone from shooting the occasional editorial piece to directing global advertising campaigns for multi million pound brands. It’s crazy.
So when I got the opportunity to pop back in to talk to the first year students on the Media Production course I jumped at the chance. They were a great bunch and even though some were admittedly very hung over (living the student dream!), were very receptive and forthcoming with their questions and suggestions.
It was great to see so many of them taking the initiative afterwards and coming up for a quick chat, as well as tweeting and emailing me later in the day. I’m looking forward to seeing their progression through their time at Uni and hopefully working with some of them on shoots in the future.
