Students work with local businesses

Our students have worked with lots of local companies over the years, applying what they learn to real industry briefs. From creating video content for local clothing store Mimm to having their concept art made into playable assets by games company Lockwood for their game Avakin Life.

Feature film Outlawed

Local director, actor and stuntman, Adam Collins, and our former TV & Film tutor, Luke Radford, directed the action feature film ‘Outlawed’ which released on Netflix this year. Over 100 Confetti students past and present supported a variety of professional crews on and off set.
