My name is Graham Fitzgerald and I’m currently a student at Southampton Solent University in Hampshire, entering my final year on a course in Television and Video Production. I’ve had a passion for video since I can remember, but I really got into it when I started making machinima videos back in 2007.
In 2010 I took the plunge and decided to study media at university, after receiving a B in A2 Media Studies in college. I thought I deserved an A, but that’s all in the past now. I’m not bitter.
Since starting at Southampton Solent University, I have had the opportunity to do a huge range of work – from directing live broadcasts, to filming at Glastonbury Festival and working at Abbey Road Studios.
As well as all of this, I’ve spent the last year and a half helping manage SonarTV – the Students’ Union’s TV station. In my time at SonarTV, I have learn a huge amount about how I work best, how to get the best out of others and the importance of having a strong brand.
