This month, Higher National Diploma Media Year 1 students from, Banbury and Bicester College, took part in a work experience placement with design agency, House on the Hill Design.
The students all worked for Rob Scotcher, from the design agency, helping him film a corporate event by operating the cameras, filming live presentations and discussions.
Tanisha Ali, a student who attended the agency said, “It was a great experience to work for a large design agency on a live presentation. We had great support from Rob at the agency and he guided us through what we needed to film. It was good to have the other two HND students there, Simon Padley and Jack Bonner, as it made it feel like a team effort. We’ve had some good experience this year and I’m learning a lot about life in industry.”
After their placement Rob commented, “These three students have a bright future, each of them has their own strengths. Jack was very knowledgeable about cameras and has great enthusiasm for making sure things are shot right. Simon was clearly dedicated and is a very strong character - I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him in the future. Tanisha is not only great at using a camera, but also picked up on a few things extremely fast. She has shown very clear early signs of someone that could quite easily lead a team.”
