First year/MA/YIJ TV assessment deadline EXTENDED
To mitigate the impact of me having been on strike please now submit your TV assessment on the Wednesday of the week we come back after Christmas, ie 15 January. The new deadline is 5pm that day. Use the extra time well though by emailing me cues/low res timelines/scripts and I pass on helpful feedback. My aim is to help everyone, so whatever you are struggling with, whether it is access, interviewees dropping out or how to write and structure your script, please knock on my door or email.
I want to help.
As a student, it can sometimes feel like life is flying by at 100mph. One minute you're sunning yourself on a secluded Italian beach and the next you're drowning in deadlines and getting heart palpitations from the copious amounts of caffiene in your bloodstream. Add a weekend job into the equation and the semester is almost over quicker than you can say: "Would you like fries with that?"
Since reaching the ripe old age of 22 it feels like time is escaping me. I barely have time to breathe let alone eat three regular meals, socialize, stick to my deadlines and make sure that I drink enough water (Echo Falls doesn't count, apparently). Call me crazy but I love the thrill(?!) of trying to find a healthy balance between university life, work and down time; I'm the type of person that likes to be kept busy. An extra shift is available, you say? Sure, sign me up. A fun run this weekend? See ya at the finish line.
Congratulations to Isabel Eidhamar for scooping Student Project of the Year at the NCTJ's Awards for Excellence last night.
It is the third year in a row that the award has gone to a Centre for Journalism student, with Isabel following Boglarka Kosztolanyi and Michael Haffenden.
