MA Moving Image and Sound provides a natural progression for careers in audio visual production, film, motion graphics, traditional and computer generated imagery (CGI) for 2D and 3D animation, character and asset development for games, scripting and narrative and pre and post production. Students may also choose to progress to PhD level.

My current role at Bossa Studios is great because it’s challenging and I learn new things every day. I constantly have to review my work and push myself to be better. I’m working on something different week-be-week so I never feel like I’m stagnating. My career highlight so far is going to two BAFTA Games Award ceremonies, being nominated for three BAFTAs and winning one of them.

What I’m learning at NUA is having a big practical impact on what I teach and how I teach. I’ve taken tons of stuff from the course and implemented it in the classroom. For instance a technique called Pecha Kucha which is a very concise way of presenting. I’ve introduced it to students and now other teachers at the college are also using it.
