Celebrate 2017 – Our FE Students Showcased Their Work Across Hockley

July 20, 2017
Celebrate 2017

This month, our Level 3 TV & Film, Music, Performance, Games and Digital Media students took over Hockley to showcase their work for Celebrate 2017. The exhibition spanned across three amazing venues, perfect for showing what our young creatives are capable of.

Broadway Cinema

After the success of Confetti’s very first Celebrate Short Film Festival last year, our students once again took over Broadway Cinema to treat their fellow students, staff, family and friends to a range of films (including Ellies which highlights the important work taking place on the cardiac unit at Glenfield Hospital), documentaries and music videos – all written, directed, edited and starred in by our students across our TV & Film and Film & Acting courses.

Rough Trade

After lunch, our Music Performance, Music Technology and Live Events students came together to put on an amazing free music festival at Rough Trade. People were treated to DJ sets, incredible live bands and amazing custom stage lighting. The festival didn’t stop there, as the music continued at The National Videogame Arcade with the Confetti Live Acoustic Stage.

The National Videogame Arcade

Celebrate finished with the public being invited to The National Videogame Arcade to test a variety of games created by our Games Technology students, ranging from Tabletop to Virtual Reality. Our students’ Digital Media, VFX and Gaming portfolios wowed the public, giving them an idea of what the next generation of Games Art and Visual Effects students can create.

Check out our Games Art students’ work in this online portfolio.

Games tutor Adam Cain was really proud of how good the students work looked:

“It was fantastic to see our talented students artwork placed within an institution such as the National Videogame Arcade. I think it’s a rare opportunity to exhibit somewhere like this, and hopefully they’ll be proud of their accomplishments.”

It was an amazing day and we wish the best of luck to all of our students as they head into higher education or the world of employment.

So, where will you be studying this September? If you want to study one of our college courses or degrees then it’s not too late to apply.
