In late December last year, five groups of CCI students were awarded a Professional Practice Fund of £1,500 each as a result of their bid for funding of upcoming projects they hope to create and develop.
The five groups consisted of students (see names below) from five different courses; BA (Hons) Graphic Design, BA (Hons) Television and Film Production, BA (Hons) Drama and Performance, BA (Hons) Photography and BA (Hons) Illustration.
Graphic Design students, Ryan Robinson, Will Chiu, Connor Dyer, Lucy Pittard and Jasmine Hotham, applied for the fund to showcase the work of third year Graphic design students at the London exhibition showcase ‘New Designers’.
TVFP students Matthieu Light, Alex Fountain, Jodie Lucas, Jessica Allen, Harry Pages, Mary Cohen, Kiran Kana and Brittany Carter will be using the £1,500 to support their presence at Ports Shorts – a London based film festival which allows TVFP students to showcase their work in the heart of British cinema.
The group of Drama and Performance students consisting of Lara McDowell, Kristen Adler, Megan Rutledge, Elena Shaw and Andrew Bradley applied for the fund to support Lara’s new project to create a musical based on the letter given to her grandmother from American WWII soldiers.
Photography students, Elliot McRae, Kathleen Winter and Emma Durrant-Fellows will be using the fund to support the photography end of year exhibition in London giving graduating students the opportunity to showcase their work in front on potential clients and industry professionals.
Finally, the group of Illustration students, Joe Parker, Aggie Davies, Rachael Douce, Aaron Baker, Megan Highland, Ella Tomkins and Rachel Brain applied for the Professional Practice fund to exhibit their work at the New Designers showcase in London this June.
We’d like to congratulate all those who were able to receive the Professional Practice Fund.
The Associate Dean to students, Simon Brookes, will be announcing the date of round 2 of the Professional practice Fund very soon so if you have an ideas relating to potential projects and events, stay posted.
