Opportunity for final year Design and Creative Arts students

We want to showcase the work of final-year students from the School of Design and Creative Arts through a series of video diaries.

Each year we commission final-year Creative Arts students to produce a vlog or video diary charting your thoughts and work as you progress towards your Degree Show in June.

What are we looking for?

We're looking for at least three final-year students from across the School of Design and Creative Arts, ideally we would like one student from each subject area: Fine Arts, Graphic Communication & Illustration, Textiles, Design, Industrial Design and Product Design and Technology.

These vlogs are an opportunity to showcase your portfolio of work to a wider audience. They will also share the processes involved behind the scenes to put together work for a show like this, showcasing the variety of skills required and the associated workload.

The videos can be filmed on your phone and don’t need to have super high production values, but we would like them to be filmed over the weeks running up to the Degree Show, rather than just being filmed in one go. They should be approximately 5 minutes long - although we may produce shortened edits for use on social media.

The videos will be uploaded to our YouTube channel and shared on social media to help promote the Degree Show and your work to a wider audience. This can help you as you take your next steps on graduating from Loughborough.

  • If you have any examples of previous video content you have put together then feel free to send us an example (or a link) but this is not essential

We want to make sure the videos show a variety of different styles and cover as many of the degree courses as possible so this will be taken into consideration when choosing which students we commission.

We will pay the selected students £50 each - paid on completion of your video.

We want this opportunity to be accessible to all students and we welcome interest from students from any background. If you would like to discuss any accessibility issues or may need further support to produce a video diary, then please email luarts@lboro.ac.uk or call 01509 222948.
