Former Student Sets Up Production Company

We are thrilled to be working with former student Nathan Clark to produce high-quality professional videos of Durham Sixth Form Centre to feature in our virtual open evening events and online promotional material.

Nathan joined us as a student after completing his GCSEs at Belmont Community School and chose A-levels in media studies, film studies and IT. Whilst studying at Durham Sixth Form Centre, Nathan was able to work on our Lumiere installation in 2015, which he remembers as a great experience. After completing his A-levels here, he decided to progress to higher education at the University of Sunderland, his first choice university. Nathan’s chosen degree was Broadcast Media Production, which is a moving camera, documentary and studio-based production course with both course-related work and real-world clients. Students here at DSFC are now able to gain fantastic hands-on skills and experience in our industry-standard TV studio based in our recently built Digital Media Centre, which offers a range of media-based courses including TV and film production, media studies and film studies.

During his time at university, Nathan immersed himself in all possible opportunities to further his skills and knowledge of the industry, including Producing, filming and editing The North East Football Show for a period of seven months, broadcast every Friday on Made in Tyne and Wear. He also gained experience working with Fulwell 73 on Sunderland Til I Die and with Lime Pictures as a runner on Geordie Shore. Nathan was also selected to work as a runner on the Avengers Infinity War and Endgame films during filming at Durham Cathedral.
