We are pleased to announce that Stephen Partridge has been appointed as the new Director of the School of Film & Television and will commence in this post on 4 January 2021.

Stephen’s research focuses on creative reuse of media content and its distribution across the Internet, with particular attention dedicated to the complex realm of music sample clearance. Exploring the capacity of Intellectual Property laws to govern the Internet in this context, Stephen has shared findings at an array of conferences over recent years including presentations at Innovation in Music in the UK and at the Audio Engineers Society in New York.

As a Director and Editor, Stephen’s filmmaking practice is focused on capturing live music performances both in conventional multi-camera and 360 ̊ video formats. Projects have also encompassed innovations in immersive audio, with collaborations over the last decade including manufacturers such as Sennheiser, Neumann, Sony and Dolby.


Having previously worked at Central St Martins managing Knowledge Exchange for University of the Arts London and at Buckinghamshire New University as the Head of the School of Media and Creative Industries, Stephen brings a wealth of knowledge and experience which will help us to take the School of Film & Television onto the next stage of its journey.

We look forward to welcoming Stephen to the Falmouth University community.
