So what can I say about the last two years being at Uni? Ive made good friends, people who I hope to see again in the years to come. The experience has been incredible. I admit there have been ups and downs to it like deadlines creeping closer and closer but you work together as a team with the people you meet to meet those deadlines and thats certainly something our group has done. As for the future I really dont know what to expect. Im already working at a small media company where I can gain experience and improve my filming, photography and editing skills but seeing as Im not doing a third year yet I hope to do that within a year or so and from there, maybe move to London and find work with in one of the bigger media companies. Ive always wanted to film documentaries for the BBC so I hope to do that one day.

Over the past two years I have thoroughly enjoyed myself, not only because of the course but also because of the lecturers and fellow students on it as well. I feel as if the course has taught me a massive amount as it has overall made me a better film student but it has also made my confidence grow hugely which Im really happy with. I think the opportunity has prepared me really well for years to come as its encouraged me to further my education at Southampton Solent, this means I can gain more knowledge of the industry but also have an even better chance of achieving my goals. None of this would have been possible without the past two years though and the lecturers that have helped me through it. Working on the music projects was probably the most enjoyable, like Fayre in the Square and Aux Sessions.

The two years Ive spent in Weymouth have never really felt like work, Ive always been fully relaxed, enjoying myself all whilst learning at the same time. The course has been great for me, it has allowed me to gain valuable experience in working with real clients and given me a real understanding on how the industry works. Jason and Tim and all the other staff have never really been lecturers to me, instead I have always seen them as friends and this has made for a very easy and enjoyable two years at Weymouth and for that I am very thankful to them and I wish them all the best of luck in the future! As for me, I will be off to Southampton Solent to do a top-up in Film and Television and finish my degree. I am really eager to start and cant wait for the new opportunities I will have.

So I am at the end of the second year, my final year of the course and I feel like I have come a very long way from when I first started, enjoying every step of the way, I experienced a wide variety of different techniques and new ways of looking at things, both really helping my efficiency and work quality! Some of the best experiences I have gained from this course have got to be working in a fully equipped studio, where we had the opportunity to film multiple music videos/music show, as well as filming for local businesses to promote their companies, which really did help me become so much more confident in the way I deal with the clients and the quality of services I can provide. Now I am moving onto a new course, Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne, where I will continue to study and will hopefully have lots more opportunities for work.

The Evolution of Audio Monitoring
Stephen Brownsill Every user, production, environment, operation and application is different, meaning that universal tools simply cannot provide the versatility required by today’s customers. Audio monitoring continues to evolve as productions advance, with the need for multi-channel monitoring, configurable metering as well as the ability to adhere to the latest loudness guidelines remaining at the top of the must-have list.

State of the Nation: Wings, Fine Coffee and Fake Nudes
Dick Hobbs - new One of the many attractions of this time of year is that I get to meet with my fellow judges for the IBC Innovation Awards, and see what the industry sees as the most important, most forward-looking projects of the day. For me, this says what the key talking points are going to be in September, far more eloquently than the endless press releases from vendors which are already tumbling into my inbox.

The piece, produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Fox Stage Productions garnered stellar reviews during its recent run at London’s Noel Coward Theatre.

Make Time for Remapping
Alex Macleod For my 4th Kitplus article I thought I’d highlight an effect in Premiere Pro that frankly I would be lost without. Namely - time remapping.
