Successful Television Student Thrives in Creative Hub
22 January 2019
Amy Gillies, a third year Television student, was adamant that she wanted to study in the city. This all changed on her first visit to Falmouth.
"My first thought was, 'oh my God, it's perfect', everyone's like me", Amy told us. "It's amazing to be in such a creative hub and space where there's so much collaboration across courses and, right from day one, it's felt like the perfect place where I could nurture and hone my craft while studying Television."
“What’s great about studying Television at Falmouth is they recreate industry as much as possible - it’s a perfect microcosm of the industry - and means that when you finish, you feel completely ready to begin your career in the industry and know exactly what you’re meant to do.”
With placements at Disney Media+ and NBC Universal Hothouse , as well as overseeing the production of six-part series Spilling the Beans, Amy has been able to put her skills to the test in industry already and is excited for what the future holds.
“Television is becoming ever more accessible, particularly with video on-demand services like Netflix. It’s becoming a lot more adaptable, and people can now watch what they want, when they want to. Short form content, like Instagram TV, has a huge role to play and has already been integrated into the course. The industry is moving so quickly and the course really reflects this.”
