Creative students at a coastal college have celebrated the end of their year by holding end of year exhibitions for the first time since the pandemic.
Art, Media, and Digital Design students from both the Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth campuses at East Coast College displayed a range of animation, film, fashion, art, graphics, and photography at exhibitions recently.
With exhibitions held at the college, ARC Cinema and Skippings Gallery in Great Yarmouth recently, the creative department used the cinema for a special showing of the further and higher education courses which included documentary and special effects.
Degree student Ryan Stringer, who is studying a BA (Hons) in Visual Effects and Post-Production through the University of Suffolk at the East Coast’s Great Yarmouth campus, screened his film ‘The Imperial’ which recently won best Super Short Film at the 8 and HalFilm Awards international event.
It is the second accolade Ryan has received, having also won the Super Short category at the Cotswold International Film Festival in May.
Course leader, Phil Bury, said: “The exhibition has been two years in the making.
"It’s a unique experience and a great achievement for the students and their families to display their work to the public."
