Case Study

Alex Moore

Sheffield, UK

BA (Hons) Film and Media

Alex Moore studied BA (Hons) Film and Media at the University of Sunderland and went onto a successful career developing and producing programmes for Children’s BBC. He has recently been announced as Vice President (Non-Fiction) of the production division of the prestigious VICE Media Group.

My time at the University of Sunderland has undoubtedly given me a wide range of experience which I’ve been able to use in my career and a very good base for some high-end jobs in the industry. 

I was really impressed with the course from the start as we were actively encouraged to develop our own creativity, which helped me to break away from my comfort zone and gain the confidence to explore new ideas.

While at University, we had to work up new ideas based on a fairly tight brief, and then pitch our proposals to a panel of relevant industry figures. Simulating that high-pressure environment was an amazing experience and the feedback we would get was really useful. The tutors were genuinely inspiring and I learned so much from bouncing ideas off them."
