Beginning in mid January, a new In-House Production Unit, Film CEL, (Film Craftsmanship Excellence and Learning) will launch. This new addition to the Creative Broadcast and Film Production programme at LSAD, will provide a Media Work Practice structure around craftsmanship of content creation.

Through Film CEL students will have a structure of practice under the guidance and mentorship of a Coordinator. This

production section will be run jointly between academic staff and students with goals to provide professional film/broadcast and

video production content for LSAD/TUS content channels and where appropriate, Internal & external industry companies and

local Community Social, Arts and Cultural organisations on a not-for profit basis. Students working on an IPU production will be

managed by the coordinator, who would also work on and oversee productions. The aim of this IPU is to promote professional

craftsmanship culture within the discipline with the students while also providing opportunities for work placement with

professionals and discipline aligned organisations. Both work practice and skills will need to be demonstrated while meeting

learning outcomes for various production and post-production roles across a variety of forms and media, where appropriate.

In the coming weeks and months there will be updates on the progress as well as any news and events covered by the team.
