UCA Broadcast Media - Finale

The first post on this blog was on the 12th January 2012, and here we are on the 28th of November 2014, and every last thing has been handed in. 3 years have flown by - They say time flies when you're having fun and that sentiment is true - for there has never been a dull moment or a day without laughter at The Studios. I've had some fantastic opportunities and experiences throughout the lifespan of Broadcast Media which I'll take away with me for the rest of my life. To have been on set for Take Me Out, Being in the production gallery through sheer happenstance during the live run of Catchphrase, meeting TV personalities like Steven Mulhern and nearly accidentally running over Seasick Steve in the carpark with Lizzie. I've made films about about transgender people, films about vampires, and films about people getting hit by cars! We've all had some amazing times throughout the course and I'll never forget the wonderful people I've met. I've definitely changed for the better, I'm a lot more confident than I used to be and I've had 3 years to really tune in my cinematography skills.

During Sixth Form I had absolutely no interest in ever coming to university, some people convinced me I should go - as such almost bottling it on the first day. Broadcast Media was the only course I ever wanted to do, I applied for others within UCA but never had any intention of actually going to them should I not get a place on Broadcast Media - here I am writing this today. I'd go back and do it all again if I could - I never wanted to go to university at first but I can say now truthfully that I feel like I never want to leave! The old proverb says all good things must come to an end, after all.

With that closes the last chapter of UCA Broadcast Media.  I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Simon, Fergus, Helen and Laura (though she's only been around a short while) for their constant help and support throughout, and to the rest of my broadcast media "family", here's to your every success.

Here's to the future, whatever it may bring.
