A workshop by ex-EastEnders, Top of the Pops and Sky Sports News sound professional Nick Way rounded off the Media department’s November masterclasses.
Nick showed Television Production and Music Technology students how to get the best sound for television using a range of microphones in different situations. First-year Television Production student Michael Roberts said the class “opened eyes to job opportunities”.
Media students benefitted from two other masterclasses involving industry professionals over the course of the month.
Gemma, a regular returner to the University having graduated in Media Performance in 2003, taught level two Media Performance students about the art of interviewing and reading news bulletins.
Del, who works for the QVC shopping channel, gave Television Production students a masterclass in vision mixing and cutting live pictures in unrehearsed productions.
Kathryn Wolfe, Senior Lecturer in Media Performance, said:
“These masterclasses from professionals working in the industry are inspirational and aspirational. Not only do students learn new skills but they make contacts essential for future employment.”
