THE LAST Coventry Conversation of the autumn series sees two Coventry University graduates returning to the lecture theatres to pass on tips and anecdotes about their lives after graduation.
Brad Powell, Director of the Midlands based Video Production Company Pro-Mo Media and Verity Pabla, co-founder of the successful production company I’m not a Machine Productions (INAMP), will be divulging their top tips on 10 December in the Ellen Terry building.
Brad grew up in Essex and developed an interest in video production at an early age yet didn’t study media as a subject until much later. After getting A-levels in Law, English and IT, he went on to start a Law degree but decided to change half way through to pursue his underlying passion for film production. He achieved a First Class BA honours in Media Production at Coventry University. Brad enjoys writing and researching his own film and documentary ideas and continues to develop and grow his business with his colleagues producing work for a range of clients including Blue Chip corporations and regional government institutions.
Having co-founded INAMP for ‘100% Pure’ – a weeklong national festival exploring representations of lesbian and bisexual women through creative and cultural media in 2006, Verity officially launched INAMP as a professional company in late 2007. Through the company’s work, Verity has developed a reputation for being innovative, resourceful, free-spirited and truly creative.
INAMP have organised a film and discussion season at The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum of world-class social issue documentaries, including The Yes Men Fix the World and The Age of Stupid.
This lecture is free and open to all so if you want to hear what these two graduates have to say about finding your feet after graduation, come along to ETG34 in the Ellen Terry Building, Jordan well on 10 December at 1pm.
