On-set experience helps students brush up on skills


A GROUP of media make-up students had the chance to brush up on their skills with the opportunity to work alongside a professional special effects artist on a film set.

Chloe Hall, Paulina Lusciewicz and Amelia Calvert, who completed their studies this summer, worked on-set assisting make-up artist Vera Fenlon as part of the production of the WW1 drama, Pals for Life, which was filmed near Blackburn.

Vera was among a number of professionals who ran sessions at the Knowledge Bites event, a behind the scenes insight into working in the film and TV industry held at the College’s Printworks Campus back in June.

During her visit, she agreed to take on some students as assistants on the recommendation of college staff, which was then organised through Vera’s and the College’s Facebook sites.

“The girls were absolutely fantastic on set,” Vera said.
“They arrived well on time, were supportive to cast and crew, worked well as a team and were eager to learn. They took directions very well and stayed calm under pressure.”
