Industry Week 2021!
Updated: May 7, 2021
How did industry week come around so quickly?!
February's Industry week for SFX and SMUFX at University of Bolton is always a highly anticipated time of the year. It's the best time for our students to be making connections to industry practitioners and networking with them, especially in Covid times when we can't get out to events and exhibitions! This time round, we have 5 incredible speakers with us throughout the week, with the return of firm favourites such as Donald Mowat, Kate Benton and Joe Knapper, as well as Lucille Harding and Leviathan Workshop's Jake Linzey. The students and staff had a great week hanging out on zoom with the pros, learning tips and tricks of the trade and talking about all things to do with practical effects in the film, tv and events industries.
Here's what one of our third year SFX students had to say. "I really enjoyed the Industry talks. Being in my final year of university, it was a fantastic opportunity to see what field of this of the industry I’d like to go into. The guest speakers, which are some of the biggest names in the industry, were such lovely and informative people!"
We'll be doing a more in depth look at each talk soon (when our transition back to on campus teaching is over and we have some more time), so keep an eye out for more blog posts coming soon!
