Media and communications students have marked the end another year at London Met with a special end of year show.

Date: 2 June 2015

Students studying digital media, film, film and television studies and journalism showcased their best work at the School of Media, Culture and Communication’s End of Year Show on Friday, 22 May.

The diverse nature of the courses on offer at London Met was clear for all those attending the event to see. Work on display included documentaries, drama, experimental film, animations, digital artefacts and installations.

"Students on our courses work extremely hard through the year to produce a variety of exciting practice-based projects,” commented Karen McNally, Course Leader for Film and Television Studies and co-organiser of the show.

“The End of Year Show is a great opportunity for them and others to celebrate their work.'

Amongst students’ work on show at the event, was a screening of feature film produced by Film and Television Studies student, Max Thompson.

Uniquely titled Immortal Jellyfish Porn, the film is a black comedy focused on the thoughts of a young adult male from his bedroom.

"I am very excited to see how people will react to this film, it always a welcome relief when something that has been in your head for so long is finally made real in some way,” Max commented ahead of the screening.

Also on display were design concepts for a new photo sharing app, several website designs for sharing a portfolio and personal projects.

The work on display at the show successfully demonstrated how courses offered by the School of Media, Culture and Communications is focused on combining theoretical and practice-based learning.
