Students, staff and external guests attended three of the School’s biggest annual events - SEND 2019, the School Summer Show 2019, and Final Cuts.
Date: 07 June 2019
The School of Computing and Digital Media’s (SCDM) Enterprise and Networking Day (SEND) runs concurrently with the Summer Show, offering employers and other industry professionals the chance to see the projects London Met students have been working on throughout the year. It also provides a great opportunity for students to build networks with industry professionals.
Dr Stan Zakrzewski, Head of the SCDM, opened the event: “All of today’s events underpin the culture found throughout the School. The School was formed three years ago, and since then we have been determined to bring together people in industry, commerce and research students to promote collaboration and discuss ideas of international interest.
“Today is all about exchanging ideas, and working out how we can help one other to build a better future both nationally and internationally.”
SEND 2019 had a strong emphasis on cyber security and finding work within the fashion and fashion media industry, with students able to engage in talks with industry professionals.
The event ended with a wine reception before students and staff could go on to enjoy the opening of the Summer Show.
SCDM Summer Show
The SCDM annual Summer Show took place over two days in the Graduate Centre, giving students the chance to demonstrate the incredible projects they’ve worked on throughout the year.
The disciplines of the students’ work range from computing, creative technologies, journalism, mathematics and electronics.
Visitors were able to play video games and interact with some novel high-tech toys, explore interactive worlds, experience acoustic soundscapes and see films and animations, as well as participate in project discussions with students and academics.
The following week, Friday 14 June, the Summer Show has its second big event, Final Cuts. This year's event featured screenings of final-year projects by students graduating from Film and Broadcast Production BA, at the National Film Theatre BFI, Southbank – one of the most famous cinemas in London.
Dr Jeremy Collins, course leader for Film and Broadcast Production BA, said: "We are excited to be back at the BFI again this year where our students will be displaying the skills and creativity in filmmaking which they have developed over the three years of their degree course. I’m looking forward to seeing their work on the big screen at the Southbank!"
A wide range of fiction and non-fiction projects will be presented, from fictional narrative films, documentaries and music videos.
