The Student Media Project 

What we Can do for Your Business?

The School of Media at the University of Gloucestershire is a centre of excellence for media practice. Our students are at the cutting edge of video production, experimental audio, animation, web design and writing for a range of media.

We are often asked by local companies to provide students and new graduates to produce video, audio and interactive media for their websites. To answer this demand we have set up the Student Media Project, which provides innovative professional work at realistic and competitive prices.

Each new project is discussed with the Head of School, and once approved is passed to the Production Team for development. The team works with the client every step of the way to ensure that what we are producing exactly meets their requirements.


The Production Team

The Student Media Project is overseen by graduate students, who commission undergraduates to work on individual projects.  For larger, more complex projects we commission staff or other freelance media professionals to work alongside the students.

The make up of the team will depend on the nature of the project, but at SMP we aim to provide the best possible service to our clients as well providing excellent employment opportunities to our undergraduates, working alongside graduates and media professionals. 


Lex Beckett, from Digital Film Production in 2009 and has since become a successful local freelancer, specialising in Lighting, Camera work, Editing and Production. He's able to pass on the tricks of the trade he has learnt since leaving University to the current generation of undergraduate students as well as coordinating all of our SMP contracts.

Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou,, graduated from the Digital Film Production course in 2011 with a First Class Degree and two multi award-winning short films. He has worked professionally for over a year with a wide range of clients in various roles, including extensive work in post-production motion graphics. He has learned a lot in this time he can pass on to students to help them with their future careers.


At the SMP we work in a variety of ways to produce media products that are right for you and which can suit any budget.

At our higher end we are able to provide large professional and experienced crews with advanced production equipment such as cranes and tracks, multiple cameras, green screen studio space, advanced 'after effects' or animation and professional actors.


At our more budget conscious level we use current production students (who are experienced practitioners in their own right) to complete much of the work. They are guided and mentored through the process by our experienced team of media graduates.

At the University of Gloucestershire we have a huge range of media related, highly practical courses so we will always have the skills at our disposal to meet your needs.

Our approach and prices are tailored to meet your needs - so if you're interested, we'll meet for a coffee and talk through any ideas you already have and the direction you'd like to take the project (with no obligation of course!).
