NTU student, Dale Fallows, has recently completed a work placement with local video production company, VPoint TV.

Dale completed his studies on our FdA Media Creatives in July 2014, and in September progressed to our Art & Design Media Practice top-up course. He undertook the placement with VPoint TV as part of the Media Creatives course, gaining valuable hands-on experience in industry.

An integral part of the Fda Media Creatives course is that students undertake two extended industry work placements during each year of the course, giving them the opportunity to experience different aspects of the creative industries, and to develop their professional skills.

Dale commented: "The one thing I noticed about VPoint TV is the high standard they work to and how I've had to take a step up from what I've been used to.

"I got to work with the latest version of Avid and EditShare and it was really good to see the professional standard of software that is used in the industry. You get a good understanding of how to use the equipment at university, but actually putting it into practice in the field just gives you that extra bit of experience.

"I've been on both sides of the camera while I've been here. I got to help out with actual shoots and be on set with actors and with the crew, so it was really enjoyable. The good thing about VPoint TV is that it's a big enough company to be working with, big brands and big companies, but small enough so you can get involved and be an integral part of the team while you're there."

VPoint TV are an award-winning video production company based in Nottingham, who create lots of different work for a range of businesses and organisations. They have worked with NTU both professionally and collaboratively for a number of years.

VPoint TV commented: "Nottingham Trent University is fantastic talent resource for local creative industries like us. Over the years we have enjoyed having a number of work placement students, who have come to us to expand on their video production skills and to share their new and innovative ideas. Several of them have been offered full-time employment after graduation."
