From media student to successful freelance videographer and editor

Explore your options - Get into a career in the media

Five years after leaving Chesterfield College, Sasha Moon has university degree and a career he loves.  He told us about his journey to the job he is doing now and how studying for a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production helped him. 

“I loved my time at college. Thanks to the strength of my portfolio and help with my application I got into the Arts University College Bournemouth, a revered media and arts university. In the first year I was repeating a lot of the skills I learnt whilst at college, so I was already ahead.

I’m now working as a freelance videographer in London. I film and edit a variety of subjects, from weddings to architectural firms and interviews. I really wouldn’t be where I am today without the skills and confidence instilled in me from my time at college.

My tutors were fantastic, if I fell behind with work their support was invaluable. They gave me useful structures for handling workloads and helped instil a positive mind set during challenging times. Their passion for the subject was infectious, and it’s down to them that I have sought work in the industry. I feel so lucky to have studied Creative Media at Chesterfield College.”
