Kristy Myrie student profile v1Kristy Myrie 

Course: Film and Television Studies BA 

"The Film and Television Studies programme offers students the chance to study a wide variety of topics ranging from comedy to Dadaism and from politics to celebrity."

My three years at Brunel were fantastic – a truly life-changing experience. Not only did I enjoy my course but I also made some amazing friends. You’ll be taught by lecturers who are passionate about their subject and who have published extensively in their field. In your final year you can undertake a practice-based or a written dissertation on a topic that really interests you.

When I graduated I was lucky enough to land a position at the BBC as a runner on a drama production called Frankie. I am now working for a global advertising agency. I work alongside Campaign Managers to ensure the smooth and effective deliveries of print, digital and radio campaigns for clients including Staffordshire University, RAC, Bang and Olufsen, and Audi.

If there was one piece of advice I could give students who are planning to study Film and Television Studies at Brunel, it would be to get as much practical work experience as possible so that you can plan your future career and start building contacts with people within the industry.

"This placement with Chiswick Buzz has given me the opportunity to develop my camera and editing skills in a professional and challenging environment."

I have been fortunate enough to secure a good number of placements at a variety of professional media outlets during my time at Brunel, the most significant of which I secured through the contacts which the Film and Television Studies programme has in the industry. Firstly, I was put in touch with the online television broadcaster, ChiswickBuzz, a company I have been working with since the end of my second year. This placement has given me the opportunity to develop my camera and editing skills in a professional and challenging environment.

Secondly, as a student on the final-year work experience module, I was able to successfully apply for a two-week position in the media department of the renowned international charity, WaterAid. This placement gave me the chance to work with some very talented people, whilst also providing an impressive platform on which to showcase my work. Both of these placements have led to part-time paid jobs, for which I am very grateful.
